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:

  1. Coinage, a New York-bred son of Tapit and trained by Mark Casse, worked at the Casse Farm operation in Central Florida this morning. This winner of the G3 With Anticipation Stakes at Saratoga back in September went 5 furlongs in 1:01 flat. That was the bullet move out of 2 to go the distance at the farm track. In 6 career starts to date, this one has 2 wins and 3 thirds. Only miss was a 9th in the G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Del Mar in November. Could be ready for more action soon, since this was there 3rd published work since being returned to serious training on Dec. 23.
  2. Words of Wisdom, a 3YO son of Tapit who was bred and is still owned by Godolphin Stables, worked this morning at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans. This one — who ran 2nd in a MSW event at the Fair Grounds on Dec. 9 and was defeated less than 3 lengths — went 4 furlongs in :48.80. That was 6th best time out of 18 to clock the distance today. Trainer Brad Cox probably will find another spot for this one soon. Stay tuned. Keep your eyes open.
  3. Fenwick, a 3YO son of Curlin and trained by Steve Asmussen, worked this morning at the Fair Grounds, as well. This one — who ran 2nd on debut at Belmont Park in October — went 5 furlongs in 1:00.80. That was the bullet move out of 8 to go that far this morn. This one could be ready for a another show soon.
  4. Red Knobs, a 3YO son of Union Rags and trained by Dale Romans, worked this morning at Gulfstream Park. This one — who ran 3rd to Major General in the G3 Iroquois Stakes at Churchill Downs in September and was 8th in the G2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes — went 5 furlongs in 1:01.05. That was the 3rd best time out of 6 to be timed at the distance. Be interesting to see what path this one takes down South. Stay tuned.
