Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Shanghai Bobby (No. 3): "It was the first time [John Velazquez] has ridden him. I cautioned him before the race that [Shanghai Bobby] kind of has a tendency to wait when he makes the lead. He was trying to time it and not get there too soon, and not cut it too close, either.

Leslie Young, winning trainer of Gustavian (No. 4): "Last year we opted to skip Saratoga. Not that he can't run over firm ground, but it gets a little firmer over the summer. We opted for the same plan [this year]. We freshened him up, happy and healthy coming into Belmont, a big, galloping track. He liked it last year, so we thought, 'Why not for a big Grade 1 like this?'"
