Mythical Power Prepares for JC Gold Cup

The Bob Baffert-trained Mythical Power, runner-up to Quality Road in the Grade 1 Woodward, worked five furlongs in 1:02.43 this morning in preparation for a possible start in Saturday’s Grade 1, $750,000 Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational.

 

“Everything is good,” reported John Terranova, who with his wife, Tonja, oversees the Hall of Fame trainer’s horses while in New York.

 

Terranova was also supervising Baffert trainees Bonnie Blue Flag, the Grade 1 Test runner-up who went five furlongs in 1:00.68 in preparation for Saturday’s Grade 1, $350,000 Beldame Invitational, and Bulldogger, who breezed a half-mile in 49.73 on the main track after the break.

 

“I don’t know what Bob has planned for him,” said Terranova of Bulldogger, most recently sixth in the Grade 1 King’s Bishop. “Right now, we’re just keeping him happy.”

 

Terranova reported this morning that Rapport, sixth as the favorite in Saturday’s Grade 1 Gallant Bloom Handicap, exited the race in good order despite her disappointing performance.

 

“She looked great this morning,” said Terranova of the Baffert-trained Rapport, who in her previous start was a front-running winner of the Grade 3 Victory Ride at Saratoga on August 28. “She probably just bounced since she ran so fast in her last race.”

 

The Terranova-trained Wall Street Wonder, who returned from a four-month layoff to finish fourth in the Icecapade at Monmouth on September 5, worked a half-mile in 48.62 this morning over the training track and remains under consideration for Saturday’s Grade 1, $350,000 Vosburgh. Last Sunday, in his first work back, the 4-year-old City Place colt breezed a half-mile over the training track in a bullet 47.24.
