Hula outrider horse for Halloween at Santa Anita.

World Championships
Breeders' Cup Workouts

Date: 10/31/2023

Tuesday morning was sunny for the morning works at Santa Anita, with temperatures in the mid 50's. We got to the track around 6:40am today, just after Practical Move died from a cardiac event while returning from his gallop, and then later this morning trainer Jena Antonucci scratched Arcangelo from the Classic due to an ongoing hind hoof issue and was retired. Arcangelo has not been on the track since Saturday. European horses that arrived Saturday cleared quarantine last night and made their appearances on the track and turf course today. The post position draw was held Monday evening, so check out all the entries, post positions, and morning line odds here.

Here are photos for 86 of the horses on the track Tuesday morning. Click the small picture to see a larger version. At time of writing we are awaiting further comments from connections for the rest of the races, and will be added when available.

horse racing breeders cup Clapton (Classic) drew post 7 (but will break from post 6 after the scratch of Archangelo). Galloped 1 1/2 miles under exercise rider Rikki Ramdial. Trainer Chad Summers said, "The way the race is supposed to set up on paper, it could not be a better post (7). Arabian Knight has to work to get over, which is a dream scenario for us. We should be able to save a little ground early on in the race which is important when you are going 1 1/4 miles."
horse racing breeders cup Derma Sotogake (Classic) was alone when he went to the track. Entering on the three-eighths-pole gap, he jogged back to the chute, warmed up in the chute and then switched riders from Masa Segawa to jockey Christophe Lemaire. He then had the easiest of breezes (a glorified strong gallop), untimed, coming down the stretch with good energy and galloping out evenly around the bend.  Lemaire said, "He went very well. He was grabbing the ground well and feels strong. I liked how he felt."
horse racing breeders cup Proxy (Classic) had an easy morning, his first since arriving at Santa Anita on Monday from Kentucky. Jogged a circuit and promptly returned. Trainer Stidham expected to be on the grounds Wednesday. 
horse racing breeders cup Saudi Crown (Classic) jogged after arriving Monday from Kentucky. Trainer Brad Cox said of groom Darwin Aguilar, "He's a good horseman, and he's just a good person period. But, he's a very, good horsemen. He's very aware of what's going on with his horses and, always if there's an issue, he not only brings it to my attention or the assistant's attention, but he's also knowledgeable and knows what to do. When there is an issue whether it be a puffy ankle or a bruised food or skin irritation or whatever it may be, he's very aware of what's going on. He loves horses, he dedicated, loyal, a top class employee. They don't get any better. He's one of the best."
horse racing breeders cup Senor Buscador (Classic) galloped 1 1/2 miles under exercise rider Dennis Means. "The post is good and the horse is good too, so we are happy at the moment," said trainer Todd Fincher.
horse racing breeders cup Ushba Tesoro (Classic) entered from the 3/8 pole gap, jogged back to the chute, galloped about 1 3/4 miles and then schooled in the paddock for about 20 minutes before returning to the barn. 
horse racing breeders cup White Abarrio (Classic) galloped 1 1/2 miles under exercise rider Emily Ellingwood. Chip Dutrow, assistant to brother Richard Jr. said, "My brother wanted an outside post. That's what he would have liked. I haven't talked to him about the post position yet. It's not the outside but I just feel like that, it's my opinion, that him and Irad are going to have to work that out. He's so durable that wherever he's at he's fine. Wherever his early position is he'll be able to work things out. He's got such a turn of foot that I just don't think that it's going to be a problem. Some horses can't regroup. He can regroup."
horse racing breeders cup Zandon (Classic) galloped 1 1/2 miles. Trainer Chad Brown said, "He looked super. He seemed to like the track. He worked a couple days ago and just had a walk day when he shipped and just trotted a bit yesterday, once around. It was his first day back out of a work, so he just grabbed the bit a little bit. Not bad, but he'll settle down tomorrow and he always seems to settle well as he gallops through the week."
horse racing breeders cup Desert Dawn (Distaff) galloped 1 1/2 miles. Trainer Phil D'Amato said, "She is doing really good. She had a nice easy gallop this morning and is coming up to the race great."
horse racing breeders cup Hoosier Philly (Distaff) jogged 1 mile after arriving from Kentucky on Monday. "We got the 1 (post)!" said Kinnon La Rose, assistant to Tom Amoss, who had said the further inside the gate, the better. 
horse racing breeders cup Le Da Vida (Distaff) went out with a pony and jogged a circuit of the Santa Anita dirt, one day after arriving from Kentucky. Trainer Ignacio Correas said, "She's very good and was happy today. Tomorrow we will gallop her after 9 a.m., then school her."
horse racing breeders cup Randomized (Distaff) galloped 1 1/2 miles around the Santa Anita dirt, showing ample energy. Trainer Chad Brown said, "(Randomized and Search Results) looked super. I'm very pleased with both of them. I'm excited to watch them train as the week goes and see them get over the ground here."
horse racing breeders cup Search Results (Distaff) galloped 1 1/2 miles around the Santa Anita dirt. The first half of the gallop, she was full of energy and a bit tough to handle, but then was smooth-as-silk the second time past the grandstand.  Trainer Chad Brown said, "(Randomized and Search Results) looked super. I'm very pleased with both of them. I'm excited to watch them train as the week goes and see them get over the ground here."

There was quite a bit of consideration given to the Classic; obviously we pre-entered in it. We just wanted to go in the race where we thought we had the best chance. If we can win the Dirt Mile, we would rather do that than run third or fourth in the Classic."

He is going to have to deal with a little less ground, but he deserves to be here. He reminds me of a horse I trained a few years back named Airoforce. Like Can Group, he broke his maiden at Kentucky Downs, he also won the Bourbon and he finished second in the Juvenile Turf. He only got beat by a neck."

I hemmed and hawed about not running, but I thought it was a nice spot and he was going to have to do a little something anyway. He won as easy as a horse can win (4 1/2 lengths). More importantly, the next day you could not keep him on the ground. He's a pretty nice horse. He will be on the lead in this one."
