They (Gun Runner and workmate Gettysburg) worked head-and-head last week, and this week we chose to back him off Gettysburg early and just let him settle. I thought he handled it really nicely and galloped out really good. It wasn’t as intense of a work as last week, and I feel good about it…. He was probably two or three (lengths) off of Gettysburg away from the pole, engaged him probably by the three-eighths pole and Gettysburg carried him to almost the sixteenth pole.
