Bill Mott, winning trainer of Riposte (No. 2): "I think the longer distances have probably helped her. She broke a little slow, so she was fourth instead of second or third, but she was still within range of the leaders. She rated very nicely and kicked very well. She punched pretty good off a slow pace."

"We have nothing planned for her right now. It's too close to run her back in the Diana, so she won't do that."

Joel Rosario, winning jockey aboard Riposte (No. 2): "Last time, there was no speed. Today, I just let her run her race. I rode her in Florida when she came from off the pace. She can do anything. She's a little filly, but it looks like she can do a lot of things. I tried to get on the outside. I didn't want to be caught wide, but I wanted a clean trip and not get stuck inside. She got the job done today."
