Texas Red Works Between Races at Santa Anita

Texas Red Works Between Races at Santa Anita

2014 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (gr. I) winner Texas Red, who missed the Triple Crown due to a hoof abscess during the winter, breezed a mile in between the fourth and fifth races at Santa Anita Park this afternoon.

With Kent Desormeaux in the saddle, Texas Red started off several lengths behind a workmate through fractions of :25.33, :50.29, and 1:15.20, but began gaining ground on the final turn while under light urging. Turning for home, the colt was briefly asked for serious run by Desormeaux, and Texas Red responded with a burst of speed that carried him well clear of his stablemate. He passed the eighth pole in the time of 1:27.60, then cruised past the wire in the time of 1:38.97 while finishing well ahead of his workmate.

A son of Afleet Alex trained by Keith Desormeaux, Texas Red is scheduled to make his next start in the July 4th Dwyer Stakes (gr. II) at Belmont Park.
