David Flores says he is unconcerned about whether there will be sufficient pace for Action This Day when the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) champion makes his 3-year-old debut in Sunday's $75,000 Sham Stakes at 1 1/8 miles.
Action This Day, the champion 2-year-old male of 2003, faces a likely field of six other 3-year-olds in Sunday's $75,000 Sham Stakes at Santa Anita.
Trainer Richard Mandella says Action This Day is progressing nicely toward the juvenile champion's 2004 debut in the $75,000 Sham Stakes Feb. 8 at Santa Anita.
