Eduardo Inda trainee Riboletta, and Super Quercus also worked at Del Mar Friday. Riboletta, Aaron and Marie Jones' 5-year-old daughter of Roi Normand, completed her five-furlong drill in 1:01 1/5, handily. Super Quercus went six furlongs in 1:14 4/5 over the fast main track. Super Quercus, a Bobby Frankel trainee, has yet to start since winning the Early Times Hollywood Derby Stakes (gr. IT) by two lengths over Manndar at Hollywood Park last November.
Last year's champion 2-year-old filly Chilukki worked five furlongs at Del Mar on Friday as she prepares for her next likely start, the $150,000 Kentucky Cup Sprint (gr. II). The Stonerside Stable's runner completed the distance in :59 1/5 seconds, handily. Besides the Bob Baffert trainee, others listed as probable for the Kentucky Cup Sprint are Bevo and Millencolin. The race is a six-furlong event for 3-year-olds to be run Sept. 16 at Turfway Park.Another Baffert trainee, Best Pal Stakes (gr. III) winner Flame Thrower, worked five furlongs in the same time as Chilukki. The 2-year-old son of Saint Ballado, unbeaten in two career starts, will be ridden by Jerry Bailey when he races next in Wednesday's $250,000 Del Mar Futurity (gr. II). Others likely for the seven-furlong Futurity are Street Cry, Glorious Bid, High Cascade, Arabian Light, Revelling, Squirtle Squirt, and Trailthefox.
