Donn Hopefuls Work in Florida

Three probable starters in the $500,000 Donn Handicap (gr. I) Feb. 5 at Gulfstream Park -- Giant Oak, Eldaafer and Rule -- posted workouts during the morning of Jan. 30.

At Gulfstream, Virginia Tarra Trust’s 5-year-old Giant Oak worked five furlongs in :59 3/5 and Alghuwayriyah’ Stable’s 6-year-old gelding Eldaafer a half-mile in :48 3/5. WinStar Farm’s 4-year-old Rule earned a "bullet" for his five-eighths drill at Palm Meadows with a 1:00 4/5 clocking.

Illinois homebred Giant Oak won the Clark Handicap (gr. I) via the disqualification of Successful Dan for interference at Churchill Downs Nov. 26. Chris Block trains the son of Giant's Causeway  --Crafty Oak, by Crafty Prospector. The victory ended a 14-race losing streak for the lifetime earner of $956,677.

Eldaafer, a son of A.P. Indy  --Habibti, by Tabasco Cat, won the Breeders' Cup Marathon (gr. III) Nov. 5 at Churchill for trainer Diane Alvarado. He is on a three-race winning streak.

G2 then G3 last yr, but you get my point. Ease him back in...don't throw him into the fire.
i really hope IWR does not go in the Donn...he needs an allowance race to get some foundation back. Throw him in a G1 off the long layoff again? Look what happened last year, he very clearly needed a race and you bring him back in a G2 at 1 1/8 and then bring him right back in a G2 after he very clearly showed how tired he got. IEAH imo doesn't put the best interest of the horse first. This horse has always worked lights out, doesn't mean jump right into a G1.
