She's a Tiger Leads Sunday BC Worktab

Gary Stevens was aboard She’s a Tiger in a bullet 1:10.60 work for six furlongs Sunday at Santa Anita as the Chandelier Stakes runner-up prepares for the $2 million Juvenile Fillies on Nov. 2 for trainer Jeff Bonde.

“It was an excellent work,” the Hall of Fame jockey said. “She always works well . . . I wasn’t asking her for anything. I’m excited. She’s doing well.”

With Steve Asmussen on hand, Untapable (Juvenile Fillies) worked five furlongs in 1:00.80.

Trainer Jorge Gutierrez is likely to enter Bright Thought in the Breeders’ Cup Mile when pre-entries are taken tomorrow.

“We’ll see if we get in, although we probably won’t,” Gutierrez said of the former world record holder for 1 ½ miles on turf. “We’ll enter and go from there.”

Bright Thought worked seven furlongs on Santa Anita’s firm turf course Saturday in 1:28.60. Eddie D. Stakes winner Chips All In (to be supplemented to the Turf Sprint) also worked on grass Saturday, going five furlongs in 1:00.60 for Jeff Mullins. Lady of Shamrock (Filly & Mare Turf) went six furlongs on grass Saturday in 1:14.20 for John Sadler, while City of Hope Mile Stakes winner No Jet Lag (Mile) went five furlongs in 58.80 for Simon Callaghan.

Also Saturday, Obviously, who had his winning streak snapped while finishing fourth as the 1-2 favorite in the City of Hope Mile, worked five furlongs on turf in a bullet 58.40 with Joe Talamo up for Mike Mitchell.

Trainer A.C. Avila will enter L.A. Woman Stakes runner-up Great Hot in the $1 million Filly & Mare Sprint at seven furlongs on Nov. 2. Chantal Sutherland Kruse rides.

Surfer Girl Stakes runner-up Nesso worked five furlongs on Santa Anita’s turf course Saturday in 1:02.40 for the Juvenile Fillies Turf.

“She can go either way,” trainer Vann Belvoir said of her running style. “We’ll see how the race sets up.

“I think Martin’s (Garcia) got options. We went easy with her in the work. She finished up (in one) eleven and three (fifths for six furlongs). She’ll have one more breeze next Saturday.”

The Grade I, $150,000 President of the United Arab Emirates Cup Invitational field for Arabian horses, 3-year-olds and up, is expected to attract 13 for the 1 1/16-mile race on Nov. 1.

They include Ms Dixie, 4-year-old filly champion of 2012; Smoke House, champion 3-year-old of 2012; and So Big Is Better, champion older horse of 2012.

Agent Joe Ferrer has the following firm commitments for his two riders, Rafael Bejarano and Julien Leparoux: Goldencents (Bejarano, Dirt Mile); Clenor (Bejarano, Juvenile Fillies Turf); Book Review (Bejarano) and Sweet Lulu (Leparoux, Filly & Mare Sprint); Chips All In (Leparoux, Turf Sprint) and either Boat Trip or Havelock (Bejarano, Turf Sprint); Tiz Flirtatious (Leparoux, Filly & Mare Turf); Dance With Fate (Bejarano) and Diamond Bachelor (Leparoux, Juvenile); and Silentio (Bejarano, Mile).

Gary has some very nice horses to ride in the Breeders Cup.
Anne,i was just looking at the Jeuvenile filly race.After your concerns on the fast works,i wanted to look into her .She is doing nothing that she has not done before,if anything she looks to be coming into this race stronger. Notice she ran on 8/31,then she was idle in her works ubtil 9/21. One week prior to her race.Leads me to believe Bonde was not as concerned with the Stake she ran in on 9/28. He had her sharp,but not on tilt. Note the difference in the workout pattern now. Only gave her 2 weeks after the race and at 5 F. Then came back one week later with a proggressive work to 6F. I would assume that she should have 1 more workout in her. Should come around 10/26. I am not familiar with Bondes' training patterns.More than likely,this should be a maintanance work. But one never knows,this filly looks like she has 2 gears.Fast and Faster.It will take a special filly to beat her. Also i was told by my buddies who are at the track every morning for the works in NY.Artemis was not good in her last work out.Quoting them,she was Obscenely good.Did it all on her own.So no worries here with Tiger.My concerns would be if she stopped throwing those bullets.
I am trying to be confident, also with the Tap it Rich kid.
Are you still confidant Anne,don't fade on me now.Positive thinking.
All her workouts are bullets. Crazy about the Tiger.
