Teddy Grimthorpe is confident that underfoot conditions at Churchill
Downs will not inconvenience Sea Moon in Saturday's Breeders' Cup Turf.
Moon's close relative Workforce was taken out of the 2010 renewal at
the 11th hour because connections considered the going too firm for the
Derby and Arc winner.
But Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner
Prince Khalid Abdullah, said: "Last year they hadn't had rain for months
and it brought about extreme conditions, but it's been different this
time. I'm pretty sure everything will be fine for Sea Moon. He travelled
over very well, has gone out again today and seems in good order."
