Quote Of The Day
“I think having Galen in the race as a late entry is definitely a very interesting addition. I don’t think it changes my approach to the race at all because once the gun goes off there are no favorites. … You have to make it happen. … If it doesn’t happen on that day then potential and expectation doesn’t mean anything. … Obviously I’m not going to want him around the last quarter mile just as much I wouldn’t want to let Meb get away early on in the race. … I think I’m a student enough of the sport to know most of the strengths and weaknesses of most of the competitors I’m going to be running against so I’ve had to decide in my mind who do I key off. … The names go out the window once the race starts.”
