Offlee Wild, trained by T. V. Smith, worked a half-mile at Gulfstream Park Sunday in :48 1/5. Smith said his 3-year-old colt is still improving since being ill earlier in the meet and is almost back to his form prior to winning the Holy Bull (gr. III). Offlee Wild will fly to Keeneland on Thursday and is on track for the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. II).
At Calder, Supah Blitz, second in the Fountain of Youth (gr. I) and fourth in the Florida Derby (gr. I), worked five furlongs in 1:01 handily Sunday. Trainer Manny Tortora said the 3-year-old colt is doing well and will probably run in the Aventura Stakes at Gulfstream on Saturday. Rosemary Homeister, Jr. will ride.
