Ron the Greek, Flat Out Tune Up for JCGC

Ron The Greek, with Jose Lezcano aboard wins the 2012 Santa Anita Handicap at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia California on March 03, 2012.
Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott expressed his satisfaction this morning after Ron the Greek and Flat Out turned in "very good" works at Saratoga Race Course in preparation for the Grade 1 TVG Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational on September 29 at Belmont Park.

 

Ron the Greek, runner-up in the Grade 1 Whitney Invitational Handicap, worked six furlongs in 1:14.05, while Whitney third-pace finisher Flat Out zipped five furlongs in a bullet 59.89, fastest of 12 at the distance on the Oklahoma training track.

 

"Very good works from both of them," said Mott. "I was pleased. Flat Out worked particularly well and his gallop out was very good. He generally works quicker, anyway. It was a typical work from Ron the Greek, so I'm happy."

 

Flat Out, whose most recent victory came in last year's Jockey Club Gold Cup while in the care of Scooter Dickey, and Ron the Greek, winner of the Grade 1 Stephen Foster Handicap and the Grade 1 Santa Anita Handicap this year, will work again next weekend, weather permitting, said Mott.
