Pool Play Breezes for Clark Handicap

Pool Play Stephen Foster top story.
Bill Farish Jr.’s Pool Play, eighth in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (GI) in his last start, continued his preparations for next Friday’s $400,000-added Clark Handicap Presented by Norton Healthcare (GI) with a five-furlong breeze in 1:01.60 on the fast main track at Churchill Downs on Friday morning.
 
Pool Play worked in company with John Oxley’s Stealcase, who is under consideration for the Clark Handicap and Cigar Mile (GI) at Aqueduct on Nov. 24.
 
“They went off (the first eighth of a mile) in 13 seconds and then did 12s the rest of the way around,” said assistant trainer Norman Casse, who oversaw the work for his father, Mark. “It was perfect. I asked them to go 1:02 and they went 1:01 and change. We like working our good horses with each other and both of these horses appreciate working in company. They’re two professional horses and it was nice to let them go out and do it together.
 
“As long as Pool Play comes out of the work fine, he is for sure going in the Clark. We’re still debating on whether to go to the Clark or Cigar Mile with Stealcase.”
 
Gary and Cecil Barber’s Delegation, third in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (GI) to Tapizar, was previously under consideration for the Clark and Cigar Mile, but is no longer being pointed to either race.
 
“We decided he needed more time in between races,” Casse said.
