Goldwaki, a Group III winner in France, neared his United States debut for Hall of Fame trainer Ron McAnally with a seven-furlong work on turf in 1:32 here Thursday.

“Goldwaki won four straight races in France for Andre Fabre and wants to go long,” said McAnally of the 4-year-old German-bred colt, who won the Group III Prix du Lys and finished fourth in the Group I Grand Prix de Paris.

McAnally said he bought the colt for Richard Duchossois on a visit to France in October, the same time that he bought the filly Rosehill Dew for his wife, Deborah.

Rosehill Dew, an Irish-bred daughter of Danehill who is now 3, worked five furlongs in 1:02.60 on the turf. “She made her first start over here running 6 ½ (finishing fourth on the hillside turf course at Santa Anita on April 15),” said McAnally. “She wants to go a mile.

“She finished second at a mile last year in France (in the Prix Esmeralda) behind Golden Lilac, who just won the French Guineas,” said McAnally.

McAnally also worked Beverly D. Stakes winner Éclair de Lune seven furlongs on turf in 1:27.40 for the Grade I Gamely Stakes here May 30 and All Star Heart six furlongs on grass in 1:15.

“All Star Heart was making a big move on the turf at Santa Anita when she slipped and fell (at the top of the stretch February 3),” said McAnally of the 4-year-old filly who seems fully recovered.
