Strong Gallop Out for Proviso

Proviso, who will try to stop European invader Goldikova from winning an unprecedented third straight Breeders’ Cup Mile (gr. IT), galloped out eagerly following her four-furlong work in a moderate time of :51 3/5 over firm turf at Churchill Downs Nov. 1. Her ears were pricked as Hall of Fame jockey Kent Desormeaux guided her down the backstretch.

Proviso posted splits of :14 3/5, :28 1/5, and :39 4/5. Her gallop-out times were 1:05 for five furlongs and 1:19 for six furlongs.


The 5-year-old bay daughter of Dansili was calm and professional prior to breezing, standing quietly on the dirt track and alertly watching other horses passing by before she headed to the grass.


“Proviso worked well; she was very good,” said the mare’s Hall of Fame trainer, Bill Mott. “Kent did a great job with her. She warmed up nicely. She went off a little easy, but came through the stretch very nicely. He never let her off the bridle. She galloped out very strong. I couldn’t be happier.”
