Santa Anita Handicap winner and Hollywood Gold Cup runner-up Game On Dude worked six furlongs in 1:12.80 Thursday morning for trainer Bob
Baffert under jockey Martin Garcia.
The work was done in company with stablemate Spurrier, clockers said. Spurrier was timed in 1:14.20.
“He worked really well, he likes this track,” Baffert said of Game
On Dude, who figures among the Pacific Classic favorites. “I worked him
earlier (because) the track’s faster earlier. He’s probably doing better
than he ever has. Fingers crossed to keep him healthy.”
