Chad Brown, trainer of Due Diligence (No. 8): "We expected him to run well; he had trained flawless all spring and summer, but with unraced 2-year-olds you never know until you actually run them. It's nice to see when they go ahead and run to their training, and this horse ran to his training today."
"We were thinking that if he ran well today I would think about running him in the Summer Stakes [Grade 2, September 14] up in Canada, a one-turn mile on the grass. Seems like it'd make sense to me, if he comes out of the race well."
