Going into the far turn, I was in tight, but I had to wait because I thought those horses were moving a little early.  When we left the quarter pole, I asked him and he really picked it up.  I thought those horses would come back to me and we would win easy, but (Dessman) kept fighting and it was close.  I knew he had run well with Gary (Stevens, recently retired Hall of Famer) and I’m happy with the way he ran today.  He was comfortable sitting in behind those horses and I like the way he picked it up when I asked him to go.”
