Last year's Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT) winner Little Mike breezed four furlongs in :50 4/5 June 11 on the Churchill Downs turf.
A 6-year-old Spanish Steps gelding, Little Mike is preparing for his first U.S. start of the season after two starts at Meydan, including finishing off the board in the Dubai Duty Free Sponsored by Dubai Duty Free (UAE-I) March 30. He likely will start next in the $500,000 United Nations Stakes (gr. IT) July 6 at Monmouth Park.
The June 11 breeze ranked fourth-fastest of six at the distance on the turf. Little Mike is trained by Dale Romans for owners Carlo and Priscilla Vaccarezza. He has won 12 of 23 starts and has earned $3,074,412.
