Harlan's Holiday, who will be one of the favorites for Saturday's $1 million Florida Derby Derby, tuned up for the 1 1/8-mile race with a sharp 5-furlong work in 1:00 3/5. At Hollywood Park, Sunday Break, breezed 6 furlongs in 1:15 4/5 for Sunday's San Felipe Stakes.
Harlan's Holiday is expected to continue his budding rivalry with Booklet in the Florida Derby, and will have the services of Edgar Prado, who replaces Tony D'Amico. Among those expected to challenge the top pair are Nokoma, D'Coach, Stephentown, High Star, Blue Burner, Personal Reward, and Puck.
The San Felipe will mark Sunday Break's stakes debut, just as it did for another colt trained by Neil Drysdale, Fusaichi Pegasus. The Japanese-bred son of Forty Niner will face likely heavy favorite Siphonic, as well as USS Tinosa, Shah Jehan, Puerto Banus, and possibly Fonz's.
