Found video of him galloping Sept 8 at SA on XBTV. Looked better than at Del Mar. Still kind of funny with his head around the turn and into the stretch. And where is Dana?

Was she injured? :? I seem to remember Mike saying that was why he had been working Arro before the Pac. Classic.

I think I would lose my mind if Hoppy won the BCC. Heck, if he hit the board. I love this guy, plodding along to three-plus million!
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Looks like Cupid may have been working with West Coast, who also got the 3/68 for his 4 furlong work today.

It's good to see Mor Spirit back to work, apparently in company with Mubtaahij. I hope he returns to form soon, although it's looking like it's going to another 'train up to the BC' for this Baffert colt.

Dortmund drills a mile ahead of Awesome Again Stakes
By Steve Andersen
Dortmund, the Grade 1-winning millionaire who was briefly retired in the spring, worked a mile in 1:41.80 at Los Alamitos on Thursday for a scheduled start in the Grade 1 Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita on Sept. 30.

1:41.80 for a mile? Doesn't seem very quick. :(
I know Cupid is aiming for the Awesome Again, but who else is targeting that frequent prep for the BC Classic?

Also probable for the Awesome Again are Accelerate, Breaking Lucky, Cupid, Curlin Rules, Donworth, Midnight Storm and Win the Space.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Midnight Storm back on dirt? Was his last turf race that bad?
Hmm.... :?

It's less than 2 weeks before the race, I wouldn't expect a quick MILE work from a horse at that point. . . .

I'm sure it's all about the $$. No City of Hope Mile this year.

Seven-year-old Ivan Fallunovalot won the 6-furlong David M. Vance Sprint Stakes at Remington for the fourth time in a row, in 1:08 flat. He is such a cool, hard-trying sprinter, and his owner might be inclined to try the BC Sprint again. I'd love to see him at Del Mar. :D
