While the works for Saturday's Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships were a washout at Belmont Park Tuesday, four horses breezed in Kentucky before shipping to New York.
Luas Line, a 3-year-old daughter of top international sire Danehill, worked four furlongs in :47 2/5, the fastest time of the day over the Polytrack surface at Turfway Park as she prepped for the Emirates Airline Filly & Mare Turf (gr. IT). Trained by David Wachman for owner Eva Stockwell, Luas Line has won four of 11 starts, with two placings, all on grass.
Another pre-entry in the Filly & Mare Turf working at Turfway Tuesday was Martin Schwartz' Angara, who went five furlongs in1:00 2/5. A daughter of Alzao trained by Patrick Biancone, Angara won Arlington Park's Beverly D (gr. I).
Breezing just a tick off Luas Line's time for a half-mile on Polytrack was Gorella, pre-entered in the NetJets Mile for Biancone and Schwartz. The 3-year-old British-bred daughter of Grape Tree Road was timed in :47 3/5 for four furlongs on Polytrack.
Meanwhile, over a muddy track at Churchill Downs, Alberto VO5 Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) entrant She Says It Best breezed three furlongs in :36 2/5, the best time among 10 workers at the distance. The Stormy Atlantic
filly won Keeneland's Alcibiades (gr. II) for her owners and trainer Vickie Foley. "She's doing fine," Foley said. "The track was muddy and on the heavy side, so it was a good work. She won the Debutante (at Ellis Park in August) in the slop, so I don't see that being a problem."
