"It was a good work," Dollase said. "We wanted him to go in 1:25 and change and he went in 1:26 flat, so that's just right. He was going very slow in the first part of the work and then picked it up a bit. And he didn't turn a hair or wasn't in any distress whatsoever. Next he'll work five-eighths in about a week and ship over to Santa Anita three days out or so."
Ten Most Wanted is riding a two-race win streak heading into the Breeders Cup, having won the Travers Stakes (gr. I) and Super Derby (gr. II) most recently. He is expected to be one of the public's top betting choices when he breaks from the gate in the 1 ¼-mile Classic. Pat Day has accepted the riding assignment on the Reddam, Chisholm and Jarvis et al colorbearer.
"We're in regular communication," Dollase said of Ten Most Wanted's Hall of Fame rider. "I spoke with Pat's agent, Doc Danner, yesterday and I imagine I'll be speaking to Pat here before long. He pays very close attention to what the horse is doing."
Ten Most Wanted, who was bred in Kentucky by Jim H. Plemmons, has banked $1,553,460 with a career record of 10-4-3-1.
