The following workouts have been extracted from Jeff Siegel’s West Coast Daily Workout Analysis, which appears in this blog and is updated daily.
Sept. 28, 2019
4f, :49.2h TT
Blinkers on, ridden through the lane to be even but second best inside Super Patriot (same time, not asked much). Needs a class drop.
Oct. 10, 2019
Worked inside Drysdale barn mate Winners Club (same time) and responded to coaxing in the final furlong to edge clear late, final three furlongs in :37.3. More Than Ready juvenile colt has bit of run, getting fit.
Sept. 12, 2019
Blinkers, shadow roll, second best with Drysdale barn mate Winners Club (same time), under pressure outside through the lane while finishing a half-length back at the wire. More Than Ready colt brought $300,000 as a weanling, needs to show more.
Oct. 13, 2019
Liked this work, as she broke off a couple of lengths behind Antigone (5f, 1:01.3h) and cruised on by without a drop of ask, plenty left late, easy early in :13 flat, :25 flat, and :36.3 before breezing through the lane to be more than a length clear at the wire. Curlin juvenile filly brought $1.3 million as a yearling, getting fit, certainly not a sprint type but is a very exciting prospect for Callaghan.
Sept. 23, 2019
$1.3 million 2-year-old filly by Curlin went off slowly, was asked into the lane and was ridden out to the wire, splits of :13.1, :26 flat, 37.3 and 1:01.4 on our watches. Not a quick type but is getting fit for Callaghan, acts like a filly being trained to run long right off the bat.
Oct. 20, 2019
A tad the best inside Loafers Boy (same time), light coaxing only, splits of :24 flat and :49.2 for the final half mile. Looks okay, may be capable of improving her last outing.
Oct. 13, 2019
Broke off a couple of lengths in front of Saralin (5f, 1:01.1h) and was out finished by that one in the final stages, not really asked while finishing mostly on her own. Okay work under the circumstances, disappointed last trip after showing promise at Del Mar.
Sept. 8, 2019
Maintains her form while under light urging most of the way, final quarter in :25 flat. In good shape and should make the entries soon for new connections.
Sept. 2, 2019
Now in the Sadler barn following a $32,000 claim, not asked in smooth drill, final three furlongs 11.4 and 36.3. Probably has some room to improve, seeking another restricted turf claimer.
Oct. 17, 2019
Went fairly easily throughout while a tad the best over Liar Liar (same time), final half mile in :24.2 and :49.2, solid drill. Probably can improve her last try but will have after failing at odds-on.
Oct. 10, 2019
Easy early, asked in the late stages and responded well enough, splits of :12 flat, :24 flat, :36.3 and 1:01.3 for Baltas. Burned money at Los Alamitos, looks good but may be a hard one to trust.
Oct. 19, 2019
Worked from gate with Magic Rate (5f, 1:02.4hg) and did okay for turf router, slow early and moderate late, splits of :25.4, :49.4 and 1:15.4 on our watches, mild coaxing in the final furlong while appearing willing enough. Sparingly raced but got good over the summer. May have his problems but should return soon and can fire fresh.
Oct. 18, 2019
Not really asked much, splits of :23.2 and :48.1 looking reasonably well. May be worth some consideration with a class drop.
