Toby Sheets, assistant to Steve Asmussen, winning trainer of Cluster of Stars (No. 2): "That's great, that's awesome. She's never done anything wrong, and she continues to improve, be right there against good horses, and do the right things."

Javier Castellano, winning jockey aboard Cluster of Stars (No. 2): "I had a beautiful trip. Breaking out of the gate, this filly had a lot of speed, but she was able to relax. I had a lot of confidence in her. I know she's a very classy filly and we've had success together in the past. I wasn't worried about the layoff; the combination of the speed holding today and drawing the rail was an advantage for me today."

Ollie Figgins, III, trainer of beaten favorite and runner-up Dance to Bristol (No. 8): "My filly ran her race. We kind of had to go after that filly early or she definitely was not going to beat her. The winner looked better than us today, that's for sure."
