Beloved Deputy
worked a half-mile in 49.20 at Hollywood Park.  Craig said she went nice and easily throughout and finished well.  She seems to be moving well after getting back onto a regular breeze schedule, and should return to the starting gate in March.

Boulder Creek breezed a bullet five furlongs in 59.80 at Hollywood.  Craig wanted to put a little air into him in preparation for his race on Friday, February 5th at Santa Anita.

Cantankerous Clyde breezed a beautiful half-mile in 48 flat at Hollywood.  Craig has begun to increase the intensity with him, and he really has been going well.  Craig expects Clyde to be back in the starting gate in March.

Feed A Fever breezed a good half-mile in 48.80 at Hollywood Park.  Craig has just been trying to keep her sharp.  She is ready to run.  Craig is pointing her for a starter allowance going a mile going a mile and a sixteenth on Sunday, February 7th at Golden Gate.

Phosphorescent breezed a solid five furlongs from the gate in 1:01.40. He needed a gate breeze because he has been off for so long.  Phosphorescent is ready to run.  Dale thought that we likely would find something at the beginning of the next condition book.

Tapit's Brew breezed an easy half-mile in 50 flat at Palm Meadows.  Tom Albertrani said he looked great and was well in hand.  It was a routine breeze, and we will breeze back early next week.

Sunday:
Camp Victory
breezed a strong half-mile in 47.80 at Santa Anita.  Carla has been very pleased with the week that he has had.  Carla indicated that she would likely look to go back to the main track for Camp Victory's next start, but she has yet to pick anything out.

Merus Miami breezed an easy five furlongs in 1:00.80 at Golden Gate.  O.J. Jauregui reports that he was not even blowing after the work and came out of the effort in good order. There is an allowance race on February 13th at Golden Gate going that OJ is looking at, but he is going to wait until closer to the spot before committing to it. He would ideally like more spacing between races, and will see how this horse continues to train over the next week. 

Sheryl's Melody breezed an easy half-mile in 51.40 at the distance.  Dallas said the work was fine.  It was all she needed.  We enter Thursday for the MSW going a mile and forty yards on February 7th at the Fair Grounds.

Saturday:
Awesome Gem
returned to the worktab breezing a beautiful three furlongs in his first work back since being freshened.  He went 37.20 by himself and was so well in hand that he earned the rare "breezing" notation in California.  Craig Dollase called the work magnificent.  Awesome Gem was breathing fire and bucking after the breeze.  We should now be back on a regular breeze schedule.

Cinco de Mayo Mio breezed an easy three furlongs in 38.90 at Palm Meadows.  This was her first official work since returning to the track, so she went very easily.  Tom Albertrani was delighted with how she went.  She is an elegant mover.  She will now be on a regular breeze schedule.

Hey Hey Mama breezed an easy three furlongs in 38.80 at Palm Meadows.  It was designed to be slow on purpose, but Tom noted that this filly has a "very classy demeanor" about her.  She has that star of the show attitude that many of the best horses have.  She will breeze back roughly every seven days.

Friday:
Mesa Thunder
returned to the worktab breezing an easy three furlongs in 38.20 at Hollywood Park.  Craig wanted him to go nice and easily, and he did exactly what Craig wanted.  He will remain on a weekly breeze schedule, and he should return to the starting gate sometime in March.

Mr. Fantasy fired a bullet three furlongs in 36.60 at Palm Meadows.  The work was visually impressive.  Terry and Tom were there for the work, and Terry commented how Mr. Fantasy looked like he did when he was whipping horses last winter in New York.  Mr. Fantasy was not blowing as hard after this breeze and appears to be getting fitter.  He is looking less thick each day.  Terry had not seen Mr. Fantasy in full training since last summer, and he noted that Mr. Fantasy looks like he has made the progression from age 3 to age 4 beautifully.

Seeking The Ghost breezed a good five furlongs in 1:01.80 at Palm Meadows.  Tom Albertrani thought it was a good breeze.  Terry thought the filly went well.  He noted that she has not grown too much over the winter.  However, she still finished strongly.  Terry went back to the barn after the breeze, and she cooled out superbly.  We are on target for the MSW on February 7th at Gulfstream.

Thursday:
Middle of the Nite
breezed a lovely five furlongs in 1:02 at Palm Meadows.  He went by himself and went off a little slowly.  He got the first furlong in 13 and change but picked up the tempo and came home the last furlong in 12.  It was a very nice move.  Edgar Prado is committed to ride Middle of the Nite in the $200,000 Sam Davis Stakes on February 13th at Tampa Bay Downs.  Did you see Middle of the Nite mentioned in Steve Haskin's article in the Bloodhorse? Click here to see.

Quiet All American worked another solid five furlongs in 1:00.80 at Gulfstream Park.  He has really picked up his head after his maiden win at Gulfstream.  He has always been pretty good in the mornings, but he has really begun to focus every day.  We are on target for the $100,000 OBS Champions Stakes on February 15th at Ocala.

The Defense Rests breezed a quick half-mile in 48.05 at Belmont.  Mike Hushion had not asked him for much speed, so he had the rider turn him loose a little bit this morning and he responded in a big way.  He answered the call nicely and has gotten back onto a regular breeze schedule.  If all goes well The Defense Rests should debut in March.
