When the gap opened at the head of the stretch, he just exploded. A horse like this just makes our job easy.

I really like the way he's coming in.

He was in a very good position, tracking. And when Robby called on him, he just exploded. To have a horse like him in the barn is a treat.

The fact that the Connally is another graded race helped with the owners' decision to send him.

Hopefully there will be some pace in the race and he can just run them down in the lane.

He exploded down the stretch for a very convincing win.

I don't think that will effect him. He's pretty smart, an easy horse to get along with. I don't think the lights will come into play. He's pretty laid back.
