Clockers corner: 4/8-4/14 (Saturday)
Flat Bold breezed an easy half-mile in 49.95 at Palm Meadows. The work was 12th of 24 at the distance. Flat Bold has been breezing super fast, so Tom did not want him going too fast as we stepped him up to a half-mile. He looks great, and Tom thinks we are on target for a return at Belmont in May.
Awesome Gem fired a bullet five furlongs in 1:00 flat at Hollywood. The work was the best of 34 at the distance. David Flores was aboard for the breeze and said Awesome Gem went great. We are on target for the $1,000,000 Charles Town Classic on April 17th at Charles Town. We are scheduled to fly on Wednesday.
Celtic Charmer breezed a solid five furlongs in 1:00.60 at Hollywood. The work was 5th of 34 at the distance. There's not a lot to say. Celtic Charmer has worked very well over the last month, and we are set for the MSW on April 30th at Hollywood.
Macho Again breezed a strong five furlongs in 1:00.80 at Churchill Downs. The work was 3rd of 12 at the distance. Dallas called it a solid drill. While we are still pointed for the Alysheba Stakes(G3) on April 30th at Churchill Downs this breeze puts us in position to run in Charles Town if the landscape changes over the next couple days.
