Strings and substring help

I have 3 strings

myString1 = glengary
myString2 = glen gary glen ross xyz blah
myString3 = glengaryglenrossxyzblah
myString4 = ""

The values of these strings can (and will) change. I'm just using the assigned values as an example. The only thing for certain is that myString2 will always lead with myString1 (but may have spaces) and follow with unwanted text.

What is the best way to get to:
myString4 = glen gary

Please try:
Dim myString1 = "glengary"
Dim myString2 = "glen gary glen ross xyz blah"
Dim myString3 = "glengaryglenrossxyzblah"
Dim myString4 = ""

Dim i1 As Integer, i2 As Integer = 0

For i1 = 0 To myString1.Length - 1
	While (myString2(i2) = " ")
		i2 += 1
	End While
	
	i2 += 1
Next

myString4 = myString2.Substring(0, i2)

This works. I ended up kind of doing something similar. I just created a loop that took off the last letter of the string until I got the desired value. Thanks!
