Interview with Bob Elliston – Vice President of Keeneland on the Keeneland September Sales

Like expected, he is picking it up nicely. Angel (Garcia, the exercise rider aboard for the Sunday morning workout) said he felt wonderful and was happy with him. I do expect to work him in company with Gettysburg next week. I think the gallop-out will pick up because of company, because of competition. I actually don’t think next week’s work will be faster than today. The difference will be company, and we’re right on schedule… Being off in 13, 25 (seconds to start the work) is what I was looking for, and letting him be who he is from there.
