Keeneland Press

Amy Dunne’s Leinster, runner-up in the Woodford (G2) Presented by Keeneland Select in his most recent start, worked a half-mile in :52.80 worked in preparation for the Breeders Cup Turf Sprint for trainer Rusty Arnold.

“It looked good to me and he will come back with another easy half next Sunday,” said Arnold, who will have Tyler Gaffalione aboard Leinster for the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) on Nov.

2. “I know how fast he is.”

Qatar Racing Limited, Marc Detampel and Bottle Rocket Stable’s Vitalogy (GB), runner-up in the Dixiana Bourbon (G3) in his most recent start, was credited with a half-mile work in :50.20 for trainer Brendan Walsh.

“I got him in :50, but we were just letting him stretch his legs,” Walsh said of the move with Paul Madden aboard. “He’ll work again Friday and then leave on the 26th (for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf-G1 on Nov. 1).

Merriebelle Stable’s Walk In Marrakesh (IRE), a possible candidate for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) on Nov. 1, worked a half-mile in company in :50.40 for trainer Ignacio Correas IV.

Walk In Marrakesh finished second in the Natalma (G1) at Woodbine on Sept. 15 in her most recent start.

In addition, Breeders’ Cup hopeful Totally Boss worked on his own on the fast main track at 6:15 a.m. for Arnold. Owned by Susan and Jim Hill, Totally Boss covered a half-mile in :47.80 with fractions of :11.80, :24, :35.60, :47.80 and out 5 furlongs in 1:00.80.

Arnold was happy with the work, the third for Totally Boss since winning the Runhappy Turf Sprint (G3) at Kentucky Downs on Sept. 7. Totally Boss is scheduled to work again next Sunday and then ship to Santa Anita on Oct. 29 for the Turf Sprint with Jose Ortiz to ride.
