Curtis Green’s 3-year-old Kentucky homebred colt Tulira Castle breezed an easy five furlongs in 1:02 2/5 Friday morning at Gulfstrream Park for trainer Jim DiVito as he prepares for his biggest test yet in next Saturday’s $400,000 Holy Bull Stakes (G3) at 1 1/16 miles.

“Today’s work was basically just maintenance,” said Divito. “We’ve completed his training up to the race and now it’s time to step up and find out where we stand with some of the leaders in the division. We know he’s a very nice horse, but we still have to get the answers to some questions, particularly trying two turns for the first time.”

A son of late stallion War Pass, Tulira Castle has made four starts, beginning with a runner-up debut at Arlington Park on Aug. 9. He came back to break his maiden at Arlington on Aug. 30 and ran well finishing second in a seven-furlong allowance at Keeneland on Oct. 13.

Tulira Castle stepped up to a one-turn mile allowance over the Gulfstream track on Dec. 8 in his first start on dirt and was impressive drawing off to score by 2 ¼ lengths under Javier Castellano, who is expected to have the mount in the Holy Bull.
