Work Of The Day

- I'm not going to try and post about all the individual works, but I will comment when it's by a horse that I like. Scat Daddy gets Mike Welsch's Work of the Day (shared with Premium Tap); he drilled five furlongs in 1:01.17

Scat Daddy was actually scheduled to work four furlongs but was so full of himself exercise rider Judy Krazewski let him break off at the five-eighths pole and guided him through an eye catching work. Completed his final quarter mile in a brisk :24.19 while well within himself before galloping out six furlongs in 1:14.47. Actually grained a little ground on the grand looking Nobiz Like Showbiz who covered the same distance in 1:01.97.

Scat Daddy, whose lone setback came at the hands of stablemate Circular Quay in the Hopeful, gives every impression he’s maintaining his form extremely well coming into the Juvenile and that he will handle two turns without any trouble. [Daily Racing Form]
Unfortunately, The Works has not had any video of the works from Belmont, and a lot of prominent horses have worked out there, including Invasor and Henny Hughes. That seems like a serious gap in what otherwise continues to be a good job. Bernardini is scheduled for his final work at Belmont on Tuesday. Get Christina Olivares on a plane.
