Breeders' Cup Workouts

Date: 10/29/2018

Monday was chilly and breezy but finally sunny, once the sun was up anyway. The main track was rated fast and the turf course rated good and quite a few horses came out on the turf today. There were only three Breeders' Cup horses who had timed works today: Midnight Bisou, Yoshida, and Quarteto de Cordas. Enable was out today too, but she only walked around in the mile chute and I was never able to get a photo of her. All the Europeans who arrived early Saturday went out to the track today after clearing quarantine. The post position draw is this evening, so check out all the entries, post positions, and morning line odds here later that night.

Here are photos for 55 of the horses on Monday morning. All Breeders' Cup contenders must be on the grounds 72 hours prior to their race. Click the small picture to see a larger version.

She backtracked by walking around and stood there a little bit then she just absolutely cruised through an easy half and had pretty strong gallop in about 1:02. It was as perfect as you could hope for. She pretty much cooled out by the time she got back to the barn and dropped her head, alert and happy."
