Goldencents Sharp for BC Dirt Mile

Goldencents worked five furlongs on Santa Anita’s main track in 59 seconds flat under leading rider Rafael Bejarano Friday morning as the Santa Anita Derby winner prepares for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile on Nov. 1.

“I thought he looked great,” said trainer Doug O’Neill, who also sent out Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf favorite Clenor a half-mile on turf in 47.20. “Raffy and the horse looked great together.”

O’Neill’s Juvenile hopeful, FrontRunner Stakes winner Bond Holder, worked five furlongs Thursday in 1:00.80.

“He worked great,” O’Neill said. “There was a lot left in the tank. It’s exciting. He really came out of the FrontRunner in great shape. He’ll need to pick it up to win the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, but he’s heading in the right direction.”

Defending Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner Trinniberg, who disappointed in the Santa Anita Sprint Championship Oct. 5, worked a half-mile Friday in a bullet 46.60 for trainer Bisnath Parboo. “He went very nice without the whip,” Parboo said of the 4-year-old son of Teuflesberg, who has earned more than $1.5 million.

Defending Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner Mizdirection worked seven furlongs on turf in 1:24 flat under Hall of Fame rider Mike Smith. “That’s the exact time I got her in,” said trainer Mike Puype. “It was a nice strong work. She’s right on schedule.”

Bob Baffert said if all goes well, Secret Circle would be pre-entered Monday in the Xpressbet Breeders’ Cup Sprint. The 4-year-old son of Eddington was an impressive 1 ½-length winner last Sunday in his first start since the Grade I Arkansas Derby on April 14, 2012.

Secret Circle won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint at Churchill Downs in 2011, and won a division of the Grade III Southwest Stakes and the Grade II Rebel Stakes before being sidelined after running second in the Arkansas Derby to stablemate Bodemeister.
