Workers Out in Force at Santa Anita Park

More than 100 horses worked at Santa Anita on another in a seemingly unending skein of sun-drenched mornings, a week before the historic venue starts its 24-day Autumn Meet highlighted by the 29th Breeders’ Cup World Championships Nov. 2 and 3.

Among the 124 recorded works, including three on the training track, were 27 on the turf. Brother Francis, third in the Del Mar Derby, went six furlongs under Victor Espinoza in 1:17.

“He’ll probably run in the Eddie D (at about 6 ½ furlongs on turf on opening day),” trainer Jim Cassidy said, “but our long-range goal is the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (Nov. 3).”

The 8-year-old California Flag, winner of the 2009 BC Turf Sprint, worked six furlongs on grass in a bullet 1:14.40 for Brian Koriner.

Ninety-four works were recorded on the main track, including those by the Neil Drysdale-trained Amani, five furlongs in 1:00.60 for the Zenyatta Stakes next Saturday; John Scott, trained by Carla Gaines, also five furlongs in 1:01.60 for the Awesome Again Stakes the same day; the Peter Miller-trained Miss Empire, six furlongs in 1:15 for the Chandelier Stakes next Saturday; and Beholder, conditioned by Richard Mandella, seven furlongs in 1:26.60 for the FrontRunner Stakes the same day.
