Ginger Punch, Discreet Cat on Spa Worktab

Rags to Riches returned to the racetrack Sept. 2, but she wasn't the only marquee on horse on the Saratoga worktab.

The Bobby-Frankel-trained Ginger Punch, six-length winner of the Go For Wand Handicap (gr. I), worked five furlongs in a bullet :59. Though Todd Pletcher, trainer of Rags to Riches, isn't sure whether she'll compete in the Ruffian or the Gazelle Handicap (gr. I) a week later, Ginger Punch seems on track for her Ruffian start.

Meanwhile, Godolphin’s Discreet Cat breezed five furlongs in 1:01, his second work back following a long layoff.

Tiz Wonderful, who skipped the Travers Stakes (gr. I) following a disappointing return to the races in the Jim Dandy (gr. II), breezed six furlongs in 1:14 3/5 over the Oklahoma training track. Stablemate Kodiak Kowboy, winner of the Saratoga Special (gr. II), breezed five furlongs in 1:03 2/5 also on the training track, as a possible tune-up for the Futurity Stakes (gr. II) Sept. 15.
