Awesome Gem, Dakota Phone Work

Hollywood Gold Cup winner Awesome Gem and San Diego Handicap victor Dakota Phone worked Sunday morning toward their prospective starts in Del Mar's Grade I, $1-million Pacific Classic Presented by TVG.

 

The 1 1/4-mile race, Del Mar's seasonal signature event, is set for Saturday, August 28.

 

Awesome Gem, with regular rider David Flores up for the work, went 5 furlongs around the dogs on the Jimmy Durante Turf Course in 1:04.40. Trainer Craig Dollase said the 7-year-old who will be making his fourth start in the Pacific Classic started off a little slow but finished up well. "I think he worked very well," Dollase said. "He went over the course easily and David made him work beyond the finish line."

 

Dollase said the gelded son of Awesome Again will work next on Friday or Saturday and will be back on the main track.

 

Dan Ward, assistant to trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, said he was pleased with Dakota Phone's 5-furlong work on the main track in 1:01.60. "He went very well," Ward said. "Everything is going perfect right now for him. We're right on target."

 

Exercise rider Marco Ramirez handled Dakota Phone in the workout.
