Derrynane (Juvenile Turf Sprint) schools in the paddock Tuesday morning.

World Championships
Breeders' Cup Workouts

Date: 11/02/2021

Tuesday morning, much like Monday, was overcast and chilly for the works at Del Mar, with temperatures in the high 50's. Most of the European contingent cleared quarantine and were on the track for the first time since their arrival in California.

Here are photos for 57 of the horses on the track Monday morning. Click the small picture to see a larger version.

horse racing breeders cup Art Collector (Classic) jogged once around and schooled in the paddock after working 4f in 48.4 seconds on Sunday. Trainer Bill Mott said, "When we are home, we always give him a jog day after he works, but today we walked him through the paddock and jogged him again and everything went fine. Heís just improved on his own and we havenít done anything, really, except let him lead one winning effort into another and build himself from race to race."
horse racing breeders cup Essential Quality (Classic) jogged twice around under exercise rider Edvin Vargas. Trainer Brad Cox said, "Essential Quality was really, really good, he looked amazing training out there. He was looking around, but that was to be expected. He just jogged."
horse racing breeders cup Express Train (Classic) galloped 1 1/2 miles under regular exercise rider Amy Vasco. Trainer John Shirreffs said, "Right now, heís training at a level above his most recent races.† Although heís yet to win at the (10-furlong) distance, Iím confident he can get it. In the recent Pacific Classic he just didnít get his trip."†
horse racing breeders cup Hot Rod Charlie (Classic) galloped twice around. "I think thereís such a long run to the first turn, so any nine of the posts is probably not a big deal, but itís good that Flavien knows him so well and ĎCharlieí has good gate speed," trainer Doug OíNeill said. "He will try to put himself in a good position. Itís nine solid horses and nine solid jockeys, so itís really all a matter of positioning and I feel good that we can find ourselves a good spot."
horse racing breeders cup Knicks Go (Classic) galloped once around under exercise rider Edvin Vargas. Trainer Brad Cox said, "Knicks Go has good energy so heíll probably do a little more. So far, so good. They all shipped in well. It was a long day yesterday, but they all look good."
horse racing breeders cup Medina Spirit (Classic) was on the track this morning shortly after the renovation break for his daily gallop.† The sophomore colt is the co-third choice in the morning line for Saturdayís Classic.
horse racing breeders cup Stilleto Boy (Classic) worked 4f in an easy 52.2 seconds under jockey Kent Desormeaux. Trainer Ed Moger said, "He didnít need to go quick." Desormeaux added, "The first time around at the seven-eighths pole he was looking at all the photographers but the second time, he was all business. It was either going to be 51 or 48 and when I got to the quarter pole, I toned him down a bit. I liked what I felt this morning."†
horse racing breeders cup As Time Goes By (Distaff) galloped twice around for trainer Bob Baffert. The 15-1 outsider gets Luis Saez from post 9.
horse racing breeders cup Dunbar Road (Distaff) galloped twice around. "Dunbar Road has been great and had an outstanding career," trainer Chad Brown said. "Unfortunately, we had a couple derailments with some throat issues, but sheís back on track. She was unlucky in this race last year, getting stopped turning for home at the quarter-pole. She would have been right there. She really likes Del Marís surface, which is another key with her."
horse racing breeders cup Letruska (Distaff) schooled at the gate Tuesday and galloped 1 1/2 miles. Trainer Fausto Gutierrez said, "The exercise rider was very happy and told me she feels very, very good. Thatís what any trainer wants to know about the horse. With the travel, the training, the situations, sometimes you have to be around some problems. Right now, we are in very good form."
horse racing breeders cup Silver State (Dirt Mile) galloped twice around for trainer Steve Asmussen. The 7-2 shot drew the rail for jockey Ricardo Santana Jr.
horse racing breeders cup Marche Lorraine (Distaff) worked 3f in 35.6 seconds.
horse racing breeders cup Bella Sofia (Filly & Mare Sprint) galloped once around. "Sheís a kind of quirky filly, not nervous," trainer Rudy Rodriguez said. "I think she just hears everything. Every little thing that she hears she just reacts very, very fast. Most of the time youíve just got to be careful with her. We were jogging around, there was the sound of hitting something with a hammer and right away she started jumping all over the place. Nobody was behind her. Youíve just got to be alert and thatís what we try to do."
horse racing breeders cup Love (Filly & Mare Turf) had a trot for a clockwise circuit of the track followed by a light canter counterclockwise along with the rest of the Aidan O'Brien string.
horse racing breeders cup Loves Only You (Filly & Mare Turf) worked 3f on turf in 38.2 seconds.

horse racing breeders cup Mo Forza (Mile) is the main local hope in this event. "Heís training really great," trainer Peter Miller said. "Today we gave him about a mile and a half jog and schooled him in the gate and then schooled him in the paddock. I like the post (6). I think thereís plenty of pace and it should string everyone out. We should be sitting midpack, but thereís no real strategy other than to hope for a good trip. Del Mar takes a certain kind of horse who can handle the turns, the short stretch and the firm going ó and if you have that horse, youíre in good shape here."
