Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Overanalyze (No. 1a): “We thought he’d be prominent early. Actually, I thought he might be on the lead. He’s a horse that won first time out going wire-to-wire at Saratoga in :57 1/5. He’s got speed and the ability to carry it. He’s a ratable horse, tractable – smart horse. It looked like the horse who finished second had a lot of momentum, but actually, when he got to Overanalyze it kind of emboldened him and carried him on again.”

Ramon Dominguez, winning jockey aboard Overanalyze (No. 1a): “When [Normandy Invasion] came to me, he actually got ahead of me. I wasn’t happy about that. My horse was taking sand by that point, but I kept after him and he kept on coming. I was very proud of the way he came back at the other horse. The other horse never stopped running. It was actually my horse doing the comeback. I was very pleased about that.”

“Todd told me to let him run into the turn and to get him into a good spot. He had no problem at all laying second. He was doing it very easily.”

Mike Repole, winning owner of Overanalyze (No. 1a): “At the eighth pole, I would have said he’d get third place by about two lengths. I didn’t think he had a shot; the fractions were slow. He’s an experienced horse, a very, very gutsy horse. He’s won a stake at six furlongs and a stakes at 1 1/8 miles; he’s a very nice horse.”
