Boys At Tosconova has easy Cup work

Boys At Tosconova
Six days after putting in a blazing six-furlong workout in 1:10.90 at Aqueduct, Hopeful Stakes winner Boys At Tosconova had a more leisurely move Wednesday, covering six furlongs in 1:16.72 over the Big A's main track.

Under exercise rider Mario Madrid, Boys At Tosconova crawled away from the six-furlong pole going his first eighth in 14.53 seconds and the opening quarter in 28.07. He began to pick things up from around the turn and went his next quarter in 25.27. With only the slightest of urging from Madrid, Boys At Tosconova got his final quarter in 23.68 and he galloped out seven furlongs in 1:29.38.

"I just told him don't let him go too fast, don't let him go too slow," trainer Richard Dutrow Jr. said. "I liked what I saw; he looked good going by me both times. Mario's very happy with the horse. Like I said last week, we just need to bide our time; we're ready." Boys At Tosconova will have two more works at Aqueduct before shipping to Kentucky on Nov. 2.
