We are back looking at the daily workout schedule from around the country. Every day (Some days?), we scour the work tabs at racetracks all over the country. We are looking for workouts that may be of interest and helpful to you — as both race fans and handicappers. Some of the horses we will be tracking, you will know. Some of them, you may not know — as of yet.
We are back…Take a look:
- Royal Quality, a 3YO son of Quality Road, may be one you wish to watch for in the future, and he is our next “Horses to Watch.” Although he has yet to start a race, he got his third published work at the Casse Training Center near Ocala this morning. Went 4 furlongs in :47.60. That was the bullet time out of just two to make that distance. In three works so far, though, all have been on the fast end and he looks like he is progressing nicely. May be a couple more breezes away, but talent here. This one sold for $400,000 at the OBS Horses of Racing Age Sale last year. Take note.
- Boardroom, a 5YO mare by Commissioner and trained by Josie Carroll, worked at the Palm Meadows Training facility in South Florida this morn. This gal has started just 7 times in the career, so far, but does have a sparkling 5-1-1 record. Has won two G3s in Canada in a row. Got her 3rd published work since being returned to serious training in January this morning. Went 4 furlongs in :48.80. That was 19th best of the 82 to clock the distance. A few works away, probably, but worth watching for in the future.
- Hitting Bombs, a 3YO son of Gun Runner and trained by Brian Lynch, is another that we have added to our “Horses to Watch” list. This guy has yet to break the maiden after the first four career starts, but does have two 2nds in a row to end the 2021 season, and both of those came at Churchill Downs. Lost by less than 2 lengths to Osbourne, and by 5 to Trademark. Got his 5th published work since being returned to the training track at Palm Meadows in late December. Went 4 furlongs in :48 flat today. That was the bullet time out of 82 to clock the distance. Looks ready. Take aim. Plus, that was the same time as the workmate, Master of Arms, a 3YO son of Mastery. He just ran 3rd at Gulfstream Park in January. And, he lost to? None other than Iron Works.
