World Championships
Breeders' Cup Workouts

Date: 10/30/2017

Monday morning was overcast with low handing clouds for the morning works at Del Mar, with temperatures in the mid 60's and with some very light precipitation. We got to the track just after 7am today. The post position draw will be this afternoon, so check out all the entries, post positions, and morning line odds here later today. There weren't as many horses out as a typical Monday before Breeders' Cup with many still at Santa Anita, such as trainer Aidan O'Brien's string that arrives at 9:30PM, and Bob Baffert's large group who will arrive on Tuesday morning.

Here are photos for 35 of the horses on the track Monday morning. Click the small picture to see a larger version.

Talamo, who will ride the 30-1 Classic outsider from post 3, added, "He went real nice."

horse racing breeders cup Masar arrived Saturday and cleared quarantine Monday. The Juvenile Turf entrant walked 1 lap and then jogged 1 lap of the main track. Trainer Charlie Appleby said, "He has similar credentials to (2013 winner) Outstrip. He finished third in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere in bottomless ground but he should be at home on this faster surface. When I first started at Godolphin it was my ambition just to have international runners but it has slightly changed now because I want to have international runners with live chances."

horse racing breeders cup Mind Your Biscuits worked 3f in a bullet 36 2/5 in preparation for the Sprint. Trainer Chad Summers said, "I got him out in 48 1/5, and 12-and-change into the pole, and then 23-and-change. It was all I was looking for. It was a good finish; I wanted a blowout and we're happy with it. He's a horse that likes getting in early and getting used to new surroundings. We paddock schooled him Saturday and will again on Wednesday." He drew post 6 at 6-1 morning line.
horse racing breeders cup Mongolian Saturday, 2015 winner of the Turf Sprint will try for a second Cup win, drawing post 9 at morning line odds of 20-1. Winless since that victory at Keeneland, he comes here off a 3rd place finish in the Woodford (G2).

horse racing breeders cup Mr. Roary worked 4f in 49 1/5 this morning before drawing post 3 as a 30-1 longshot in the Mile. Trainer George Papaprodromou said, "He went good. (Jockey) Tyler (Conner) said he seemed to like the course and he changed leads at the right place."
horse racing breeders cup Nezwaah shipped in last Wednesday and galloped on the main track Monday under exercise rider Wayne Tanner, who said "We will breeze her tomorrow with blinkers on just to sharpen her up. She won't run in them but it may just get her to concentrate." The 20-1 outsider in the Filly and Mare Turf drew post 11 for trainer Roger Varian.
horse racing breeders cup Oscar Performance went out for a jog a day after he worked 4f on turf in 47 seconds. Trainer Brian Lynch said of his Turf entrant, "I love his energy level. He worked yesterday about as comfortable as a horse can work. We will let him break and heíll be up there. Iím not saying we are going to make the lead, but we will definitely let him run away from there and get comfortable and find his stride. I thought he had a lovely work over the track and also gave him a little stamina work at Keeneland before we left." Jose Ortiz gets the call aboard the 10-1 contender from post 14.

horse racing breeders cup Talismanic arrived Saturday and cleared quarantine Monday. The Turf entrant schooled in the paddock and then jogged once around the main track.
horse racing breeders cup Untamed Domain drew post 2 in the Juvenile Turf. The Graham Motion trainee is 8-1 on the morning line, off his win in the Summer Stakes (G2) at Woodbine.
horse racing breeders cup Wuheida shipped in last Wednesday and cantered twice around the main track Monday under exercise rider Kirsty Milczarek. The 20-1 outside in the Filly and Mare Turf drew post 5 for trainer Charlie Appleby. Appleby said, "She got a corn when she was at Keeneland and unfortunately had to miss the Queen Elizabeth II, but the team has done a great job with her. She has rock-solid form since the summer and I can't give her a negative at this moment. She has plenty of pace and the trip here at Del Mar is absolutely no concern."
