Suggestive Boy Strong in Pacific Classic Move

Del Mar logo
One day after Interaction worked five furlongs in 1:03.00 on turf, Hall of Fame trainer Ron McAnally sent the second of his two TVG Pacific Classic candidates, Suggestive Boy, out to test the Polytrack main surface Friday morning.

The result was six furlongs in 1:12.80 under Joe Talamo which was pronounced encouraging by all concerned.

“He went over the track well, just skipped over it,” McAnally said. “Joe jumped off and said ‘He’s the horse to beat, not (Bob) Baffert’s.’ ”

Baffert, McAnally’s fellow Hall of Fame member, is preparing Hollywood Gold Cup winner Game On Dude and two-time Classic champion Richard’s Kid for the $1 million race and has other candidates as well.

Comments from the track clockers’ booth were that Suggestive Boy finished “in full rhythm and stride and laying it down the right way.”
