Breeders' Cup Sprint contender Gold Storm worked 5 furlongs in 1:00 3/5 Monday at Lone Star Park in preparation for Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships Day, October 30th.
Under sunny, warm skies and with a steady breeze blowing at the Grand Prairie, TX track, Gold Storm was ridden by regular jockey Larry Taylor as he worked in company with Rumble in the Jungle.
"He worked like a dream," Taylor said. "He is quick. I just let him settle a little bit and then he drew off. This horse is really doing great right now. He is getting better every time I get on him."
Trainer C. W. "Bubba" Cascio said the work was designed to get the 4YO Seeking the Gold
colt to relax.
Cascio said the colt was compromised in his last race when he had to go to the lead early in breaking from the rail in the Phoenix Breeders' Cup (gr. III) at Keeneland. "We didn't want to work him that hard today. I thought he worked really good."
Lone Star-based Gold Storm has won seven of 12 career starts, including the Arlington Breeders' Cup Sprint Handicap.
Meanwhile, a shipment of horses from Kentucky arrived at Lone Star Park at mid-morning. Included in the group were Culinary [El Amante], who is being pointed toward the Juvenile Fillies, and five horses trained by Patrick Biancone. Among the Biancone trainees were John Deere Breeders' Cup Turf contender Magistretti [Diesis (GB)
], and Sense of Style [Thunder Gulch], who is also going in the Juvenile Fillies.
