Bill Mott, winning trainer of Proviso (No. 5): “She’s been a nice filly, but come to hand for us lately. We’ve got a couple Grade 1’s coming up; we’re hoping for more.

 

“Looking at the [form], I thought the race might shape up as it did, laying second, and that’s what happened. I thought she might accelerate quicker than she did, but they were cruising right along. Phola ran to her, and it was hard to know how much she had left.

 

“I’d probably want to try the Diana [Grade 1, $500,000, 1 1/8 miles on July 31 at Saratoga Race Course] with her. She has run longer races. She won the Spinster at a mile and an eighth but got DQ’d.”

 

Mike Smith, winning jockey aboard Proviso (No. 5): “She ran great. She’s probably better when she’s running at a target. The race came up light on the speed part. Bill told me not to change anything; that we were going to be laying second, and to go from there. It all worked out.

 

“She certainly is getting a lot better. She has turned it around with her disposition and the way she is running. She has become more relaxed in the gate and in the race.”

 

 

Todd Pletcher, trainer of second-place finisher Phola (No. 3): “I thought she ran a huge race. I wouldn’t be afraid to try [Proviso] again.”

 

Ramon Dominguez, rider aboard second-place finisher Phola (No. 3): “My filly finished up very, very strong. I had no excuses. She handled the turf, so that was good.”

 

 

Barclay Tagg, trainer of third-place finisher My Princess Jess (No. 2): “I thought she ran great. There just wasn't any pace – all these graded stakes are going in 48 and change. (The winner) probably the best horse in the country at the conditions.”

 

Cornelio Velasquez, rider aboard third-place finisher My Princess Jess (No. 2): “My filly ran well, she’s a nice filly. I set her down the last three-eighths, but the other filly was too good.”
