"Everything is going well," Spawr said. Bred in California by his owners, Bordonaro has won nine of 12 starts going into the Breeders' Cup, with career earnings of $642,164.In his latest start, the gelding won the Ancient Title Breeders' Cup (gr. I) in a time of 1:07 4/5 for six furlongs.
Fred Carrillo and Daniel Cassella's Bordonaro, the West Coast's top hope for the $2 million TVG Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I), worked a half-mile in :48 4/5 at Churchill Downs Sunday, Oct. 29.The work was sixth best of 64 at the distance on a sunny morning in which a dozen Breeders' Cup pre-entrants went to the track in preparation for next Saturday's championship day races.Trainer Bill Spawr said he was pleased with the work, noting the 5-year-old gelded son of Memo was "blowing a little bit, but not too much" when he came off the track.
