Haynesfield tunes up for Westchester

10 02 2010: Haynesfield & Ramon Dominguez win the Grade I Jockey Club Gold Cup by 7 lengths, at 1 1/4, 3-year olds & up, Belmont Park, Elmont, NY. Trainer Steve Asmussen. Owners Turtle Bird Stable

Belmont Park’s stakes program kicks off April 30 with the 82nd running of the Grade 3, $100,000 Westchester and multiple graded stakes winner Haynesfield tuned up for his 2011 debut in the one-mile race with a five-furlong work in 1:00.43 over Belmont’s main track.

 

The move was the fastest of eight at the distance over the “good” main track, and marked the fourth straight bullet move for Turtle Bird Stable’s 5-year-old son of Speightstown since he returned to training in March.

 

“He went very well,” said Toby Sheets, assistant to trainer Steve Asmussen, of Haynesfield. “As long as he comes out of it well, we’ll be on target for the Westchester.”

 

Haynesfield, winner of more than $1.1 million, was 3-1-0 from six starts last year, including victories in the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup and the Grade 2 Suburban Handicap along with a runner-up finish to Jersey Town in the Grade 1 Cigar Mile. He was named New York-bred Horse of the Year in 2010.

 

Also on Asmussen’s worktab was Gold Square’s Rule by Night, who went five furlongs in 1:01.43 as he nears his 4-year-old bow. Sheets said he had not yet decided where to start the Malibu Moon colt.
