tions” Duane comments. “We only made the deci- sion to bring this horse to the games in February. He was only shown in non pro but we felt he was good enough to bring and he really did prove himself in the way he ran the fast circles and made excellent stops. If I had the chance do go back in there and rerun it better sure I would” Duane con- tinues” these guys”, refer- ring to the American rein- ers, “just rode better”.
