Today's Kentucky Derby Contender Works (2-11-11)

Dialed In, Holy Bul top story

Kentucky Derby contender 

workouts for today (Friday, Feb. 11) 

(with HRN Derby rankings):

 

Today's Derby contender works featured a four furlong breeze from recent Holy Bull (G3) winner Dialed In. Steve Asmussen’s top prospect Tapizar runs in the Robert Lewis Stakes (G2) this Saturday, while his other Derby hopeful Astrology has his second four furlong work of the year at Santa Anita.

 

#3 Dialed In – Breezed 4f in :48.90 (9/35) at Palm Meadows Training Center.  (See graphic below)

#10 Astrology – Worked a slow 4f in :51.20 (37/41) at Santa Anita Park.

#18 Pluck – Breezed 5f (turf) in 1:01.60 (11/21) at Palm Meadows.

#34 Decisive Moment – 4f in :50.80 (9/15) at Calder.

#63 Moonhanger – 5f breeze in 1:01.40 (2/9) at Tampa Bay.

#104 Leave of Absence – 4f in :49 (12/35) breezing at Palm Meadows.

Below are Dialed In's most recent works.  His most recent work is his slowest in a while, although probably nothing to be concerned about:


 







Entries: 

#4 Tapizar headlines Saturday’s Grade 2 Robert Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita Park. He looks tough to catch especially since #11 Comma To The Top is expected to run in the Grade 3 El Camino Real Derby instead.

Exactly. Going in :51.20, that's crawling at SA.
I didn't think it was possible to go that slow at Santa Anita, lol.
Assmussen typically trains his slow, but honestly Astrology hasn't shown any kind of speed, ever. His low speed figures in races support it too.
You are right about Astrology. His first work was in :52 and this one goes in :51.20. Both works were supposedly handily (not breezing). I would like to see him pick up the pace a bit in his next drill.
Solid work by Dialed In for his first since the Holy Bull. Astrology seems to be plodding along. I wonder if Asmussen fell way behind with him???
