No Decision on Global View's Next Start

Glen Hill Farm's well regarded sophomore Global View put in a solid move on the Arlington International Racecourse turf on Monday morning for conditioner Tom Proctor.  With assistant trainer Lindsay Schultz looking on, the multiple stakes winner worked a half-mile in :49.60 in facile fashion, despite the handy time.

"He took it easy (in the work)," Schultz reported.  "The dogs weren't out, so he worked on the rail.  (Regular exercise rider) Gabriel (Sanchez) was on him.  He looks good and fit and he's moving very well."

A strong second to Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey's divisional leader and beaten Grade I Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf favorite Bobby's Kitten last out in the $500,000 Penn Mile, Global View impressively annexed the Grade II American Turf Stakes on Kentucky Derby Day at Churchill Downs a race prior - earning a lofty 103 Equibase Speed Figure.  As a juvenile, the muscular dark bay colt hinted at his talent by winning the Grade III Generous Stakes at Hollywood Park in his third career start with the same figure.

A decision soon will be made as to whether Global View will run in either the Grade III $200,000 American Derby at Arlington on July 12 or the Grade I $1,250,000 Belmont Derby at Belmont Park on July 5.  "No decision yet," Schultz said.  "We'll probably work him again on Monday and Proctor will be here to see that."

Global View has always been highly regarded by his connections.  A $500,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase whose full-brother sold for $525,000 the year prior, he is by the world's top turf sire Galileo, out of the Storm Cat mare Eqyptian Queen who sold for $3.8 million in 2005 to that sire's ownership, Coolmore.  Furthermore, his granddam is English and Irish champion sophomore filly of 2000, Warrior Queen.

Flush with stamina influences, the long-striding colt is said to now be aimed toward longer races after his belated bid came up short last out.  The American Derby is at 1 3/16 miles and the Belmont Derby is at a 1¼ miles.  Also on the colt's radar is the Grade I $500,000 Secretariat Stakes at 1¼ miles on Arlington's world-renowned grass course.
