Alan Goldberg, winning trainer of Tannery (No. 3), by telephone: “We have a turf course at [Colts Neck Farm], but we’ve had such a wet spring and we weren’t able to train her over it and had to work her on the dirt. We try to have our horses fit, but with her first start of the year being a mile and a quarter, I didn’t expect her to be completely ready. She came out of the race great, and I thought she’d handle the conditions today.”

Luis Saez, winning jockey aboard Tannery (No. 3): “Last time when I rode her, I knew she needed the race. I felt today that I could win. My filly was coming out on the first turn because the wind was so strong. I saved ground and I found the hole on the inside, and I rode her strong. Thank God, she won.”
