(Edited Churchill Downs press release)
B. Wayne Hughes and Biscuit Stable's Atswhatimtalknbout, a late-running fourth to Funny Cide in the Kentucky Derby (gr. I), returned to serious training with a sharp half-mile breeze on Wednesday at Churchill Downs.
The son of A.P. Indy covered the distance in :47.40 over a "fast"
track under exercise rider Raul Vizcarrando. The work was the seventh fastest of 68 at the distance.
Atswhatimtalknbout, trained by Ron Ellis, will skip Saturday's
Preakness (gr. I) in favor of a run in the Belmont Stakes (gr. I) on June 7.
