This Is Horse Racing

You know, as far as the win goes, it's bittersweet.  I would be lying if I said it was any different.  You always want to win with a clean trip and have everybody recognize the horse as the very good horse and for the great athlete that he is.  I think, due to the disqualification, probably some of that is diminished.  But this is horse racing.
