SaratogaLogo

Wine Police breezed four furlongs on the Oklahoma Training Track in 50.50 seconds Wednesday morning, his final major workout in the lead up to Monday’s Grade 1 Three Chimneys Hopeful.

 

“It was smooth as glass,” trainer Steve Asmussen said of the workout. “All systems are go.”

 

The Hopeful will be Wine Police’s second start, having drawn off to break his maiden by 7 ¾ lengths at Saratoga on July 24.

 

Another promising 2-year-old from the Asmussen barn, Kantharos, was retired after suffering a bone fracture in his left foreleg on Monday but is in stable condition, according to Asmussen.


Boys At Tosconova, expected to be to the favorite in Monday’s Three Chimneys Hopeful, also completed his preparations for the seven-furlong race this morning, going an easy five furlongs in 1:05.99.

 

“He’s all set,” said trainer Rick Dutrow of the Officer colt, who earned a 102 Beyer speed figure in winning a maiden race at Belmont Park on July 2.

 

Along with Wine Police, among the others expected in the Hopeful are Stay Thirsty, a 5 ½-length winner here on August 14, who worked five furlongs in 1:00.87 on Tuesday; Settle for Medal, a maiden winner here on July 31, who went a half-mile in 48.23 on Tuesday, and Sovereign Default, who beat Stay Thirsty at Belmont Park on July 15, and who zipped three furlongs in 36.55, also on Tuesday.
