Peter Brant’s Raging Bull (FR) and John Gunther and Tanya Gunther’s Without Parole (GB), the 2-3 finishers in the Oct. 3 Shadwell Turf Mile (G1) at Keeneland, began their serious preparations for likely starts in the $2 million FanDuel Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1) Presented by PDJF by working a half-mile in company in :50 and :50.20, respectively, over a course labeled firm Sunday morning.
The duo makes up half of trainer Chad Brown’s possible starters in the Mile that also includes defending champion Uni (GB), winner of the First Lady (G1) Presented by UK HealthCare here Oct. 3. Uni is owned by the partnership of Robert LaPenta, Michael Dubb, Head of Plains Partners and Bethlehem Stables.
Other horses with Breeders’ Cup designs working on the turf were:
Little Red Feather Racing, Gordon Jacobsen and Philip Belmonte’s Red King (Turf), who breezed 5 furlongs in 1:03.60 for trainer Phil D’Amato in company with Breeze Easy’s Outadore (Juvenile Turf-G1 or Juvenile Turf Sprint-G2), who was clocked in 1:03 for trainer Wesley Ward.
Also working 5 furlongs together for Ward were Susan Moulton, Marc Detampel and C J Thoroughbreds’ Amanzi Yimpilo (IRE) (1:03.80 for the Juvenile Turf Sprint) and Stonestreet Stables’ Campanelle (1:04.40 for the Juvenile Fillies Turf-G1).
