Works, entries, and results for the Midlantic-breds nominated to the Triple Crown.  The latest:

[su_list icon=”icon: clipboard”]
  • Five workers since our last update, and the speediest of all was Pennsylvania-bred The Man, who ran poorly in his last start — his first around two turns — but returned on Tuesday to zip four furlongs in 46 4/5 seconds at Santa Anita.  That was the second-fastest of 18 at the distance.
  • Two of the workers were the two Fair Hill-based James Lawrence trainees.  Ruby’s Love and Cat Fiftyfive both worked a half-mile over the all-weather track.  The former did so in 50 3/5 seconds (18th of 27 at the distance), while the latter covered the ground in 50 4/5 seconds (20th of 27).
  • Two other workers were from among the southern set.  Virginia-bred Defondo, most recently second against allowance company, breezed a half-mile at the Fair Grounds in 50 3/5, 27th of 42 at the distance.  A ways farther south, at Palm Meadows, Balfe’s Corner went five furlongs in 1:05 flat on the turf.
