Nearly 16 months after his score in the 2021 Grade 1 Bruce D. at Arlington, Point Me By continues to look for his first victory since.

The Point of Entry 4-year-old owned by Ron and Ricki Rashinski turned in his fourth consecutive weekly workout Wednesday, clocked at 49.8 seconds going a half-mile. It was the 21st fastest of 32 comparable breezes at Keeneland.

See where these workers may have their next starts.

Trainer Eddie Kenneally has kept Point Me By in allowance company lately. Trying to break an eight-race losing streak, the colt’s only start since June resulted in a runner-up finish to Natural Power in a turf mile last month at Kentucky Downs.

No fewer than eight graded-stakes winners breezed Wednesday in the U.S. after another seven did the same Tuesday.
