Fresh Slim Shadey Training Well

San Marcos Stakes winner Slim Shadey had his final major drill for Sunday’s John Henry Turf Championship (formerly the Clement Hirsch), going five furlongs on Santa Anita’s main track Saturday in 1:02.20.

“He worked really well,” trainer Simon Callaghan said. “He’s training great. He’s freshened up really well. We ran him back too quick last time (in the July 21 Eddie Read at Del Mar) on short rest (from the Whittingham at Betfair Hollywood Park on June 9). He just ran a flat race.

“We’ve given him some time, freshened him up, and now I think we’ve got him in really good form and he’s going to run a really good race.

“He’s won on the lead here and he’s won from coming out of it, so he’s really easy in that respect. He’s pace-dependent. If something wants to go quick in front, we’ll rate in behind. If nothing goes, we can make the lead. He’s really adaptable in that way.”
