Tapit's Brew worked four furlongs in 50:60 at Belmont. Tom Albertrani did not ask him for too much speed, and just wanted a leg stretching breeze. Tapit's Brew cooled out fine after the work. We enter Tuesday for the 50k maiden claimer going one mile on the turf on Friday, June 11th at Belmont.
Bellhouse worked four furlongs in 49:71 at Belmont. Tom said this was a good work and Bellhouse is ready to run. We have targeted a maiden special weight going 6 furlongs on June 19th at Belmont. Tom would ideally like to find a race going 7 furlongs or a flat mile, but if nothing comes up we will run on the 19th.
Tehya worked five furlongs in 1.01:20 at Golden Gate. The work was 16th of 38 at the distance. OJ said this was an improved work was last time and that Tehya cooled out well. She is ready to run from a fitness perspective, but OJ would like to school her at the gate a few more times before running. The Golden Gate meet ends on June 13th, so we will likely miss running there. We will instead point Tehya for a debut at Pleasanton, which opens June 23rd.
Belle Of The Hall worked four furlongs in 51:44 at Belmont. Tom Albertrani called this a good maintenance work. Belle cooled out nicely after the breeze. We enter Tuesday for the $200,000 Jostle Stakes at Philadelphia on Saturday, June 12th at Philadelphia.
Dancing Compass worked four furlongs in 49:00 at Churchil. The work was 12th of 44 at the distance. She is ready to run. We enter Wednesday for a maiden special weight going 4 ½ furlongs on Saturday, June 12th at Churchill.
Montana Knight worked three furlongs in 37:03 at Belmont over the training track in preparation for the 25k maiden claimer going 6 furlongs on the turf on Wednesday, June 9th at Belmont. We are in race 4 with Ramon Dominguez aboard.
The Defense Rests worked four furlongs in 50:10 at Belmont over the training track. The work was 9th of 21 at the distance. This was a routine work and he cooled out well. We are entered in a maiden special weight going 6 furlongs on the dirt on Thursday, June 10th at Belmont. However we are going to enter a maiden special weight at Monmouth on Saturday. We enter Wednesday for that race. Once we enter, we will see which spot looks more logical. We would like to take advantage of the higher purses at Monmouth.
