Sum of the Parts Works for BC Sprint

Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence’s two-time Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix (G3) winner, Sum of the Parts, worked a half-mile in :50.60 under jockey Leandro Goncalves shortly after 6 a.m.  Saturday on the main track at Keeneland.

“He did it well and in hand,” trainer Tom Amoss said. “He worked a little quicker than he did before the Phoenix (:51.40) and he’ll have one more easy work like this next Saturday or Sunday.”

Fractions for the work from Keeneland clockers were :13 and :26.20 with a 1:04.20 gallop out for five furlongs.

Sum of the Parts had three works here after his Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix victory last year prior to running fourth in the $1.5 million Xpressbet Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1). He will have only two works this time prior to leaving for Santa Anita on Oct. 29.

“We are going to change up the game plan this time,” Amoss said. “The best is yet to come with him. His race in the Phoenix was not his 100 percent best race. He is the quickest horse in the first 10 steps out of the gate I have ever had.”

Goncalves will have the mount in the Breeders’ Cup.
