Trainer Phil Gleaves (Csaba): “He ran a great race and sat off a decent pace. One thing I noticed is that he didn’t change leads in the stretch, so I’m going to have to work at that. But he ran a good race.”

“I was a little bit (nervous about shipping from Calder). He got a little nervous in the receiving barn, and that’s always a concern. He was a bit nervous in the paddock, as well, and he got a little sweaty out in the post parade, But it didn’t seem to bother him much.”

“I wouldn’t mind turning him back and run him in the Hal’s Hope (at Gulfstream on Jan. 13), but we’ll see.”

Jockey Luis Saez (Csaba): "I liked this horse as a baby and I knew he'd win this race. In the stretch I had a little trouble with horses in front of me and I had to go to the rail, but he won easy. He continues to improve with each race."

Jockey John Velazquez (Delegation): "I'm so disappointed, everything goes good until the quarter pole when someone gets squeezed inside and wins the race, there was nothing I could do from there. He ran really well."
