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:
- All in Sync, a 4YO son of Maclean’s Music and trained by Steve Asmussen, worked at Oaklawn Park this morning. The Stakes winner has not run since finishing 7th in the G2 Woodford Stakes at Keeneland last Oct. 8. But he got his first work since being returned to serious training today. Went 3 furlongs in a leisurely time of :37.80. That was the 2nd best clocking out of 4 to go the distance. In 11 career starts now, this one has 4 wins and 2 runner-ups. Both Stakes wins came at Ellis Park last summer. More to come. Stay tuned.
- Max Player, now a 6YO son of Honor Code and a multiple Graded Stakes winner in the barn of Team Asmussen, worked at Oaklawn Park this morning, as well. This guy — who has not run since finishing 4th in the G2 Suburban Stakes at Belmont Park last July — went 5 furlongs over the dirt track in 1:02.20. That was the 4th best time out of 8 to go the distance. It was his 3rd published work since Dec. 17 and 2nd in a row. Sure be good to see this guy back in style in 2023. Last win came in the G1 Jockey Club Gold Cup Stakes in 2021. Ran 8th in the Breeders’ Cup Classic that year, when it was won by the front-running Knicks Go. In 15 career starts now, this one has a record of 4-1-2 and has earned over $1.5 million in purses. If you can remember back to 2020? He was 5th in the delayed Kentucky Derby to winner Authentic.
- Dubyuhnell, a 3YO son of Good Magic and a contender for the 2023 “Road to the KY Derby” for trainer Danny Gargan, worked this morning at the Palm Meadows Training Center in South Florida. Went 4 furlongs in an easy :49.60. That was the 7th best time out of 20 to go that distance. In three career starts so far, this one has 2 wins. Last time out, he won the G2 Remsen Stakes at Aqueduct in December. Defeated the highly-regarded Arctic Arrogance in that one, too. Be interesting to see where this one lands next. Stay tuned.
- Game Time, a 3YO son of Not This Time and trained by John Sadler, was on the track this morning at Santa Anita. This guy — who was 2nd in the G3 Cecil B. DeMille Stakes at Del Mar back in December and broke his maiden at Santa Anita the time before — went 4 furlongs in :49.20. That was the 7th best time out of 22 to go that far this morning. Connections spent $290,000 to get this tone at the 2021 KEE September Yearling Sale. Has ability. Worth watching.
