Richard's Kid, looking for an unprecedented third victory in the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic (gr. I), had trainer Doug O'Neill smiling after a six-furlong jaunt in 1:13 3/5 over the Polytrack for Joe Talamo Aug. 16.
Tim Ice said again that he would nominate Summer Bird to the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I), as well as the $3 million Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. I), both at Santa Anita Park on Nov. 7. He was confident about Summer Bird's ability to handle either surface, but said the Classic was the more likely choice.
