Busy Worktab at Saratoga


Among those on the main track after the renovation break this morning was Qualia, who zipped a half-mile in a bullet 46.67, according to NYRA clockers, in preparation for the Grade 1 Ballerina on Saturday’s Travers Day undercard.


The move was the quickest of 24 at the distance.


“Actually, it was a little faster than we intended,” said Bobby Ribaudo, who trains the 4-year-old Saarland filly for Marc Keller. “There was a team of horses working five-eighths in front of her, and she wound up with a five- or six-length target. She seems to have come out of it all right.”


Rightly So also turned in a bullet move in preparation for the Ballerina, going a half in 46.04 over the Oklahoma training track, the fastest of 49 at the distance.


Tuning up on the main track for trainer Rick Dutrow were Boys At Tosconova (5f, 59.44, bullet) in preparation for the Grade 1 Three Chimneys Hopeful on September 6, D’ Funnybone (4f, 49.56) for Saturday’s King’s Bishop, and Trickmeister, who went a half-mile in 48.54. The IEAH color-bearer is nominated to the Travers and is entered in Friday’s Pleasant Colony stakes.


Classofsixtythree went five furlongs in 1:03.25 on the training track in her final work before Sunday’s Grade 1 Personal Ensign.


Notable works on the Oklahoma training track included Proviso (4f, 52.00), Unrivaled Belle (4f, 51.00), General Maximus (4f, 50.05), Convocation (6f, 1:14), and Mine That Bird (1:11.85).
