Chasing Time Workout

Chasing Time breezed a half mile in 50.1 seconds yesterday morning at Belmont Park and looked fine coming out of the work this morning. Our team will be out to see Chasing Time train in the morning and discuss upcoming race options with trainer Steve Asmussen including a potential entry in Sunday’s Gold Fever Stakes at Belmont.

Frosted Oats Workout

Frosted Oats breezed five furlongs just as the track opened this morning in company with stablemate Sweetened. Breezing in the cover of darkness on the main track at Belmont Park, the Bill Mott-trained duo stopped the clock in 1:00.82. Assistant trainer Leana Willaford thought this was a solid work by Frosted Oats and said “we’re getting there, we’re close, just not ready yet” when asked when we might see Frosted Oats enter the starting gate again. Leana added that she was pleased with the 3-year-old Frosted filly and said she continues to do everything the right way, just as she did before her injury.

Regal Rebel Workout

Regal Rebel breezed a half mile this morning over the Belmont Park main track, on the outside of stablemate Halofied. Regal Rebel was working in company for the first time since her winter break and stopped the clock in 48.09 seconds while drawing away from Halofied. Trainer Rob Atras was happy to see this move from Regal Rebel as she used to wait for her workmates and would be a bit lazy to leave their side. Rob said the rider told him he just gave Regal Rebel a little bit of rein and that was all she needed to quicken. We’re still a ways away from getting Regal Rebel back in the starting gate, but this was a much improved work to get us excited for what is in store later this year.

Who Runs the World Workout

Who Runs the World worked three furlongs this morning in 36.60 seconds. She breezed in the dark, so we were unable to get video of the work but hear what trainer Brad Cox had to say about our Quality Road filly and her progress thus far.

Carpe Vinum Workout Report

Carpe Vinum breezed five furlongs in 1:04.20 this morning while working in company over the training track. Similar to last week, our mare set the pace in the work along the inside and finished up with plenty left, galloping out nicely.

As the mare exited the track under jockey Abel Cedillo, he told our West Coast Racing Manager, Joe Moran, “Really good. She is going to run huge next time.”

We will target the Grade 3 Santa Barbara (nominations above) on May 14th as trainer Phil D’Amato is expecting a short field and continues to report our mare couldn’t be doing any better.

Going to Vegas Workout Report

Going to Vegas breezed a half-mile in 48.00 seconds this morning over the Santa Anita training track. The 5-year-old mare worked on the outside of stablemate Tournesol, and was always traveling the strongest of the two.

Jockey Mario Guiterrez, who was aboard Going to Vegas this morning, had to keep a strong hold as the duo hit the top of the stretch as Vegas was full of run. With three weeks still to go for the Grade 1 Gamely, trainer Richard Baltas did not want the mare to do more than this today, and this latest work indicates she is plenty fit and ready to go.
