Mott Happy With Flat Out, Ron the Greek

Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott, who turned 59-years-old today, professed himself satisfied after Ron the Greek and Flat Out worked this morning in preparation for Saturday’s Grade 1 Whitney.

 

Going out on the Oklahoma training track after the first renovation break, Flat Out covered five furlongs in 1:02.33 under Neil Poznansky, while Ron the Greek breezed four furlongs in 49.02 with Rodolphe Brisset aboard.

 

“Ron the Greek had some company early; actually, he had some company with some other horses that weren’t ours,” said Mott of the 5-year-old son of Full Mandate, who this year has won the Grade 1 Stephen Foster and Grade 1 Santa Anita handicaps. “There were so many horses working, he kind of got caught up, but it worked out all right. Everyone was trying to get the track at its best.”

 

Mott has an additional Whitney candidate in Grade 1 Cigar Mile Handicap winner To Honor and Serve, but remained noncommittal about whether he would enter the colt.

 

“I’ll never tell,” he said.
