Cherie DeVaux, assistant to Chad Brown, winning trainer of Last Gunfighter (No. 5): “He was waiting for the other horses a little bit coming down the stretch, but he kicked it in. It wasn’t as easy as last time, that’s for sure, but there were some decent horses in there and they hung in there. We’re proud of him.”

Irad Ortiz, Jr., winning jockey aboard Last Gunfighter (No. 5): “At the three-eighths pole, I started asking my horse and he was a little lazy. The assistant told me [about that] which was good. I started moving on him, and he switched leads and came back to me. Speed is very good today, so I was trying to put him close and stay there. You can’t be too far out. It was a strong finish.”
