Jimmy Creed Works for Malibu Stakes

Jimmy Creed worked seven furlongs on Santa Anita’s fast main track Wednesday in 1:24.80 in his final major drill for the Grade I Malibu Stakes at Santa Anita on opening day, next Wednesday, Dec. 26. “Brilliant” is how private clocker Toby Turrell of the Winners Card termed the move by the 3-year-old son of Distorted Humor, which was performed in company with stable mate Moulin de Mougin, who was clocked in 1:26.20.

“He went really nice,’ Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella said of Jimmy Creed, who will be seeking his first stakes victory in the seven-furlong Malibu, which offers $300,000 in purse money. “He went in company to keep it real.”

Jimmy Creed, a chestnut colt owned by the Spendthrift Farm of B. Wayne Hughes, was ninth of 14 in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint on Nov. 3. Prior to that, he was third beaten three-quarters of a length in the Grade I Santa Anita Sprint Championship and second by a neck in the El Cajon Stakes at Del Mar.

Probable for the Malibu, which will be drawn Friday with the rest of the opening day races: Drill, Fed Biz, Jimmy Creed, Midnight Transfer, Politicallycorrect, Private Zone, The Lumber Guy and Unbridled’s Note.
