Disturbingthepeace worked five furlongs Friday at Santa Anita under exercise rider Jesse Cardenas in :58.
"He was supposed to go in 1:01," said trainer Darrell Vienna, who caught the multiple stakes-winning sprinter in :57 3/5. Disturbingthepeace could make his next start in the Golden Shaheen sprint in Dubai.
"It shouldn't bother him at all for his next race, because it looked like he went in 1:01," Vienna said. "He was just galloping out there. But I want to see what happens in the world before committing to Dubai."
Another Golden Shaheen hopeful, Captain Squire, winner of the FedEx Sprint in the Sunshine Millions, drilled six furlongs in a bullet 1:09.80 for Jeff Mullins
Palos Verdes winner Avanzado, yet another Golden Shaheen candidate, went five furlongs on Hollywood Park's fast main track in 1:01.60 breezing for Doug O'Neill.
