Long Range Toddy, winner of the 2018 Springboard Mile at Remington Park, continues to train where he began his career, putting in a half-mile workout Tuesday morning.

 

Owned and bred by Willis Horton Racing of Marshall, Ark., and trained by Hall of Famer Steve Asmussen, Long Range Toddy breezed in :50.19 under Brooke Stillion. Remington Park clocker Vicky Grothaus caught the 3-year-old colt with splits of 24 2/5 for a quarter-mile, 36 4/5 for three furlongs and then galloping out in 1:04 3/5 over a fast track. A son of Take Charge Indy from the Unbridled’s Song mare Pleasant Song, Long Range Toddy worked after the renovation break, under an overcast sky with temperatures in the low 70s.  

A Kentucky-bred, Long Range Toddy is aiming for a return to action in the Grade 3, $400,000 Oklahoma Derby on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 1 1/8 miles. Long Range Toddy has not started since the July 13 Indiana Derby (G3) at Indiana Grand. 

 

In addition to winning Remington Park’s top 2-year-old race last year, Long Range Toddy also scored the Clever Trevor Stakes here. This spring at Oaklawn Park, Long Range Toddy continued to add to the Kentucky Derby qualifying points he accumulated in the Springboard Mile. He was second in the Smarty Jones, third in the Southwest Stakes (G3) and won a division of the Rebel Stakes (G2) before finishing sixth in the Arkansas Derby (G1).

 

Long Range Toddy was placed 16th in the Kentucky Derby. He was then third in the Ohio Derby (G3) at Thistledown followed by a fifth-place run in the Indiana Derby.
