Stars Work for Baffert, Hollendorfer

Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert sent TVG Pacific Classic defending champion Game On Dude and Del Mar Debutante hopeful Luminance through workouts Thursday morning. They worked separately, each with Martin Garcia aboard.

“Maintenance works,” Baffert said. “They just cruised around there, went well and looked good.”

Game On Dude went 5 furlongs in 1:01.40. Clocker Dane (Dr. D) Nelson recorded a three-furlong split of :37.80 and gallop out to six furlongs in 1:13.80 and commented the 7-year-old gelding was on “cruise control.”

Luminance set a track record for 5 furlongs, :57.39, winning her racing debut on July 20. Thursday the daughter of Tale of the Cat owned by Kaleem Shah went a half-mile in :48.20 with clockers catching the first three-eighths in :36.20 with a gallop-out to five furlongs in 1:01.00. Baffert said Luminance will be trained up to the $300,000,   Grade I Debutante on August 30.

Shared Belief, the Eclipse Award winning Juvenile of 2013 who extended his undefeated record with a victory in the Los Alamitos Derby, worked Tuesday at Golden Gate Fields. Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer looked on as Shared Belief went five furlongs in 1:01.60, fastest of 11 works at the distance.

“He started out behind two horses and went around them like they were nothing,” Hollendorfer said Thursday morning at Del Mar. “He looked real good.”

Shared Belief is being targeted for the Pacific Classic. Hollendorfer said he has not decided when he might bring the horse to Del Mar but probably will wait until a few days before the race.
