DEL MAR, Calif.— The horse everyone’s talking about put in his first work at Del Mar Saturday morning, going 5-furlongs in :59.40 handily. It was the fifth best move out of 80 runners at the distance. Trainer John Sadler termed it a ‘maintenance work.’
“Very pleased.” Sadler says. “He worked very nicely, nice and relaxed. We’re right on schedule so all is good.”
Sadler plans to run the undefeated son of Tapit in the G1 TVG Pacific Classic at Del Mar September 3.
“He took a liking for this track last year when he won down here,” Sadler said. “So, he likes the track.”
Flightline won an entry level allowance race at Del Mar last summer by 12 ½ lengths.
