had the tribes in or later so he worked really well and we decided to take a shot when we go in he did not disappoint us now he is a front runner and you would told me that you what you were going to be tough to catch and you lead throughout the race went wire to wire and ended up winning and and and actually ended up winning by a length and a quarter and eight he opened up there around two and a half lengths image stretch so what were your thoughts as you were watching the race well you know I tell you said a reasonable pace so I wasn't too worried the way he was running it looked like he was going to get the justice and and when you turn for a home you know camelina just tag changes a little bit Norse opened up and he never really setting down until you got past the eight ball and hours just kept going and he had something left at the end so is a doozy asks the winner's circle of big crowd is always pop there when you win a race you always seem to have a quite a few of people in the
