Trainer - James Cummings
"It's a massive effort from Trekking he's had a huge preparation, but we just had him bang on this week and while you can't ever think you have a race like The Stradbroke in the bag he was on."
"I love handicap's and to see him cruise up and win in pretty painless fashion was brilliant couldn't be more pleased with that."
"When I ran the horse in the Kingsford-Smith Cup a fortnight ago it was more to get him a look at the track because it is so different to what he's experienced in Sydney and that paid dividends today."
"Huge thanks to the travelling stable Nacim Dilmi, Reg Fleming all the guys that ride the work hose down the horses their efforts are unbelieveable, they're at the coalface and make this happen."
"If anyone has any idea on how to program a horse look how he (Anthony Cummings) programmed Prince Fawaz, learning from Dad, learning from Bart (Cummings) it's been an amzing education for me and thrilled to win a Group One on the same day as Dad, it's pretty special for the family."
Jockey - Kerrin McEvoy
"He's such a genuine race horse and a huge thrill to do it in the Godolphin colours, all credit to James (Cummings) and the team we knew back to handicap conditions would suit him and it did."
"It was good to get him back to Eagle Farm where he worked on Tuesday that little gallop in between gave him a real familiarity with the surface."
"He travelled like a dream throughout, he always tries but today the way he picked up was exceptional."
"It's either sixteen of fifteen Group Ones in Queensland, which is an amazing ratio I can't wait to get back and add to that next year."
