Whywhywhy Turns in Sharp Arlington Drill

(From track report)
Fabien Ouaki & Patrick L. Biancone's Whywhywhy, the 1 3/4-length winner of Belmont Park's Futurity (gr. I) Sept. 15, worked a bullet five furlongs handily in :59 3/5 at Arlington Park Saturday morning.

Whywhywhy's Saturday work, in preparation for the Bessemer Trust Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) at Arlington Park Oct. 26, was accomplished with early splits of :11 3/5, :23 1/5, :35 2/5 and :47 3/5. The chestnut colt by Mr. Greeley galloped out three-quarters of a mile in 1:13 1/5, while working in company with Le Notre, a 2-year-old maiden also trained by Whywhywhy's part owner Biancone.

Le Notre is slated for a start at Arlington Park Oct. 25.

"Patrick was very pleased with Whywhywhy's work," said Biancone assistant Yan Durepaire back at Arlington's Barn 14 shortly after the move. "The colt was not even breathing hard when he got back to the barn. He looked very good out there, didn't he?"

Durepaire, 29, a native of Chantilly, is the son of a long time assistant to the late legendary French trainer Francois Boutin.

Biancone has slated Michael Tabor's Zavata for an Arlington Park work Sunday morning. Zavata is also projected for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.
