World Championships
Breeders' Cup Workouts

Date: 11/01/2021

Monday morning was overcast and chilly for the morning works at Del Mar, with temperatures in the high 50's. We got to the track just after 7am today after picking up our photo credentials at the press hotel. The post position draw was held this afternoon, so check out all the entries, post positions, and morning line odds here. There were more horses here today than on past pre-Breeder's Cup Mondays, with a good number of foreign horses out this morning.

Here are photos for 50 of the horses on the track Monday morning. Click the small picture to see a larger version.

horse racing breeders cup Hot Rod Charlie (Classic) enters the Classic off a 2 1/4 length victory in the Pennsylvania Derby (G1) under Flavien Prat, who retains the mount. Hot Rod Charlie will break from post position three. Assiatnt trainer Leandro Mora said, "We love it (3). We are going into the race with a really nice horse and if you have a nice horse, you're going to have a good race."
horse racing breeders cup Max Player (Classic) worked 4f in 50 seconds. Assistant trainer Scott Blasi said, "They had their big works at Santa Anita last week. This was just to get them acquainted with the racetrack. We weren't looking for too much. All of our horses seem to be doing really well."
horse racing breeders cup Stilleto Boy (Classic) galloped twice around under exercise rider Jose Sandoval. Runner-up to Classic rival Medina Spirit in the Awesome Again in his most recent start, Stilleto Boy is scheduled to have a timed work Tuesday morning. 
horse racing breeders cup Letruska (Distaff) galloped 1 1/2 miles with the pony, two days after her final timed work for the Distaff, 5f in 1:01 1/5, over the Del Mar track. Trainer Fausto Gutierrez said that Letruska appears to like the surface at Del Mar, adding, "I think six is a very good post. It's better than to go absolutely inside or outside when you need to use more of the horse. She looks to make a normal race, nothing different. I think it's a good position."

Go Bears Go is like an old pro with this sort of stuff as he takes everything in his stride. They were both in good form on track, moving very well and it was good to get them out exercising after quarantine. It's a huge opportunity for us to be here with two live chances taking on some of the best horses in the world. I feel very lucky and very privileged to be here. I'm going to go and walk the turf track this afternoon. We just need a nice post position for them both now and fingers crossed they run big races."

We couldn't have been happier with how Twilight Jet handled his first day training on the main track this morning. We're very much looking forward to lining up on Friday."
