A P Valentine (2nd)
"As I've always said, he got nothing out of the Kentucky Derby, but
today he really dug in for Victor (Espinoza). Now he's back on track."

up. He just wasn't as quite good as the winner." -- jockey Jerry Bailey.

"I'm a little disappointed. He should have been right there at the
finish, but he got bothered on the backstretch." -- trainer Dallas Stewart.
"I thought he ran really well. It looked like he got into trouble on
the second turn. But we were happy, he ran well." -- trainer Jennifer
"After a 16th of a mile, I said `Uh oh, there is trouble here."' --
jockey Jorge Chavez.

had a good race and it was great for a horse like this to run in this race
because he needed to learn from it." -- jockey Mark Johnston.
Bay Eagle (8th)
"It was a good effort by him. He beat three horses." -- jockey Ramon
Percy Hope (9th)
"We came to try and away we go. Iowa Derby, here we come." -- trainer
