Trainer Rick Violette said, "When this horse is right he is fast. We just have to keep him right. You've never been able to question that he's got talent. He also showed a lot of heart today. He just kept going when they came at him. He really seems to love this surface. We'll just have to see how he comes out and take it from there."
Richard Migliore said, "I just let the horse go, and he was sharp. I gave him a little nudge on the backstretch to clear the inside horse, and he relaxed nicely. I just tried to wait until I could straighten him away to give him his cue, and he took back off. He was real game. Rick (Violette) told me the horse could bleed, but it really felt like he was getting all his air today."
Moon's Halo earned $27,000 for his effort bringing his career total to $63,450.
