Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott sent his quartet of Breeders’ Cup hopefuls out for their final works Sunday morning, with Royal Delta (48.96), To Honor and Serve (47.72) and Flat Out (48.01) all turning in half-mile works over Belmont Park’s main track. Ron the Greek worked four furlongs on the training track in a bullet 47.83. Mott has said that Royal Delta is likely to defend her title in Friday’s Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic, though she was pre-entered along with her three stablemates in Saturday’s $5 million Classic.

 

Trainer Chad Brown had his six Breeders’ Cup contenders out early this morning, with all but Awesome Feather working on the inner turf. Noble Tune and Balance the Books, both headed to the Juvenile Turf, worked five furlongs together in 1:03.99, while Corporate Jungle (Turf Sprint) breezed five furlongs in 1:01.20, Zagora (Filly & Mare Turf) worked a half mile in 48.77 with Watsdachances (Juvenile Fillies Turf), who went in 49.76. Headed for the Ladies’ Classic, Awesome Feather covered a half-mile in 48.50 on the main track.

 

Working on the main track Sunday for trainer Barclay Tagg was Jersey Town, who was clocked in 1:04.08 for five furlongs to wrap up preparations for Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile.
