John Oxley's Beautiful Pleasure worked six furlongs in 1:12 2/5 Tuesday morning at Keeneland and will likely use the Beldame Stakes (gr. I) at Belmont Park on Oct. 6 as her final prep for the World Thoroughbred Championships.
Trainer Rick Violette added blinkers to March Magic for Saturday's $300,000 Molly Pitcher Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. II) and the 4-year-old filly responded by winning the 1 1/16-mile Monmouth Park feature by three lengths. The race was marred by the break down of 3-5 favorite License Fee.
