Winning trainer Todd Pletcher (Commissioner): “This was awesome. I’m very happy. I loved the position he was able to get into. Once he gets into that rhythm, you can keep on cruising. Right after the Skip Away, we talked about it and decided to go to the Pimlico Special. We’ll see how he comes out of it. It’s 22 days to the Brooklyn Handicap, so that’s possible.”

Winning jockey Javier Castellano (Commissioner): “He was very strong today. He minded so well. I was able to tuck in around the first turn and he was just galloping along. He can go 24 (seconds) and 48, that’s him. I didn’t ask him until we turned for home. The more distance the better for him.”

Assistant Tammy Fox to winning trainer Dale Romans (Keen Pauline): “Dale took his time with her in Florida. She had a couple of months off. She came back for the Keeneland race and it set her up perfect for this race here. Yesterday, when I galloped her over this surface, she loved it. She loved everything about it.”

(On Javier Castellano’s ride): “What more can you say? You have the best of the best on the horse. He knew how fast he was going. That helped a lot. When you can see a horse’s ears just pricked like that and he’s sitting. He did a great job on her.”
