Norman Casse Interview

Bolt d’Oro worked three furlongs in 36.80 seconds, and galloped-out with interest around the first turn. Jockey Corey Nakatani, who rode Bolt d’Oro in all four of his starts in 2017, was aboard. Bolt d’Oro worked alone. Nakatani positioned Bolt d’Oro off the rail entering the stretch. Santa Anita clockers timed Bolt d’Oro galloping-out a half-mile in 49.80 seconds.

“I thought it was incredible, in my eyes,” owner and trainer Mick Ruis said. “We know he’s not a sprinter….He’s been wanting it bad,” Ruis said. “We’ll get through this week and see how he’s going for next week when he goes a half.”
