The misty San Gabriel Mountains on Monday morning at Santa Anita.

World Championships
Breeders' Cup Workouts

Date: 10/31/2016

Monday morning was overcast with low handing clouds over the San Gabriel Mountains for the morning works at Santa Anita, with temperatures in the 60's after rain on Sunday. We got in late last night, so didn't get to the track until just before 8am today. The post position draw was this afternoon, so check out all the entries, post positions, and morning line odds here.

Here are photos for 53 of the horses on the track Monday morning. Click the small picture to see a larger version.

horse racing breeders cup Arrogate worked 4f in 46 4/5 Monday morning under Martin Garcia. "Worked really good, he was happy and comfortable," Garcia said.. "It was fine," Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert said. He drew post 10 and will have Mike Smith in the saddle.
horse racing breeders cup Effinex breezed 4f in 49 1/5 at Santa Anita Monday morning. Exercise rider Kelvin Pahal was aboard the 2015 Breeders' Cup Classic runner-up. "It was good; it was all we were looking for," trainer James Jerkens said. "He just ran in the Jockey Club Gold Cup (Oct. 8) and he had a nice work at Belmont before we left, so we weren't looking for anything too much." Flavien Prat will be in the irons from the inside post.
horse racing breeders cup Frosted had a routine gallop Monday morning at Santa Anita under exercise rider Rob Massey. "He's deceiving and when he goes out there you think he's going in :19 or :20 seconds an eighth (of a mile)." assistant trainer Neal McLaughlin said. "I put the watch on him this morning and he's going :17. His average is probably :17.2. I like that. That means he is getting over the track well and he's going faster than he looks. I couldn't be happier with what we're seeing so far." Joel Rosario gets the call in the Classic out of post 2.
horse racing breeders cup Hoppertunity went out for a jog for trainer Bob Baffert, who said "Hoppertunity looks the best he's ever been right now." He drew post 9 for the Classic.
horse racing breeders cup Melatonin galloped twice around the oval under exercise rider Martin DeRubin then schooled in the paddock. "He's doing awesome," trainer Dave Hofmans said. "He'll breeze a half-mile Wednesday with (regular rider) Joe Talamo up." He drew post 6 at morning line odds of 12-1.
horse racing breeders cup Win the Space galloped 1 mile at Santa Anita with regular exercise rider Amelia Green. Trainer George Papaprodromou has decided to take a crack at the Classic. "My horse deserves to run in the Classic. He's run well against California Chrome a couple of times." Gary Stevens gets to ride the 30-1 outsider from post 5.
horse racing breeders cup Corona Del Inca galloped 1 mile under regular exercise rider Daniel Padilla. Trainer Guillermo Frenkel Santillan said Monday that his mare's preparations leading up to the Distaff are done. "She is ready. She's in maintenance mode until race day. We all come to win," Santillan said. "We learned a lot from our previous experience with Calidoscopio (2012 Marathon winner)."
horse racing breeders cup Land Over Sea galloped 1m under Gabby Blanchard over Santa Anita's freshly harrowed main oval at 7:45 a.m. "She kind of tailed off on us this summer, so we freshened her up a bit, and now she's training well," trainer Doug O'Neill said. "She's acting like she did before her race in the Kentucky Oaks (in which she finished second)." Mario Gutierrez gets the call in the Distaff from post 2.

"Clockers got her in 58 4/5, she went a little bit fast, but she is doing awful good," trainer Richard Mandella said. "It's the Breeders' Cup. We'll go out there and do the best we can. They are not easy races but I have good horses."
horse racing breeders cup Nuovo Record went for a routine exercise under her regular rider Hideyuki Obara at around 8:30 a.m. Racing manager Hiroshi Ando, who is supervising the filly's preparations at Santa Anita until the arrival of her trainer Makoto Saito, said "The plan will be to go on the turf later in the week, and she'll have a breeze on the turf on Wednesday, with her assistant trainer Kazuyoshi Aita in the saddle. In Japan, she has had to run against the colts a lot, so I am looking forward to seeing her run here against her own sex (in the Filly and Mare Turf)."
