Magistretti worked over the soft course at Lone Star Park in preparation for Saturday's John Deere Turf competition.
Personal Rush, a Japanese-based entrant in Breeders' Cup Classic – Powered by Dodge (gr. I), breezed Wednesday at Lone Star Park in his final workout for Saturday's $4-million race.
Working over a track labeled fast, the 3-year-old son of Wild Rush worked in company with Taconic as he went five-eighths of a mile 1:01 3/5. Taconic, trained by Michael Stidham, worked three furlongs in :35 4/5.
Personal Rush stood out on the track as he was wearing the distinctive pink hooded blinkers that covered his ears.
Trained by Kenji Yamauchi for owner Tomiro Fukami, Personal Rush has won five of nine starts. British-based jockey Frankie Dettori rides the colt Saturday.
While nearly all of the Breeders' Cup horses went to the track for some form of exercise Wednesday, the only other workout was turned in by Magistretti, a son of Diesis
who will run in the John Deere Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT).
Magistretti worked over the soft turf course in company with Patrick Biancone-trained stablemate Ball Four, with both horses timed in :39 3/5 for three-eighths of a mile.
