Al Khali Breezes for Turf Classic

On Sunday morning, Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott sent out expected Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational starter Al Khali for his final tune-up for next weekend’s Grade 1, 1 ½-mile race.  The son of Medaglia d’Oro covered a half-mile over the main track in 49.10 according to NYRA Clockers.

 

“He worked well,” Mott said of the Grade 2 Bowling Green winner. “He’s been close [going a mile and a half], but he seemed to handle the mile and three-eighths last time.”

 

Mott said he was also likely to start the 5-year-old mare Treat Gently in the Joe Hirsch, and she posted a five-furlong work at Belmont on Saturday morning, clocking in at 1:04.73 on the main track.

 

Finally, Mott reported that Belmont Stakes winner Drosselmeyer, sidelined with an ankle injury in July, was doing well at WinStar farm and could return to training within the next two months.

 

“I saw Drosselmeyer last week,” Mott said. “He’s just getting some R&R, he’s been in the Aquatred. He looks sound and good and I guess we’re hoping to get him back to our barn maybe sometime in November, [but] he’ll begin training at WinStar.”
