Dubai World Cup (G1) winner Country Grammer, who has been stabled at WinStar Farm following his victory on March 26, got back to work Saturday with an easy three-furlong breeze.

The 5-year-old Tonalist horse completed the move in 37.33 seconds. 

Country Grammer won last year's Hollywood Gold Cup (G1) and then missed nearly nine months before returning to finish second in the Saudi Cup in February. In the Dubai World Cup, he bested an international cast that included U.S.-based stars Hot Rod Charlie and Life is Good. 

Country Grammer is trained by Bob Baffert, who is currently serving a 90-day suspension.
