ARCADIA, Calif. - Canadian-bred Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird has completed his first workout at Santa Anita, galloping five furlongs in preparation for the US$350,000 Goodwood Stakes on Oct. 10.
Jockey Joe Talamo was aboard Mine That Bird on Tuesday morning in place of regular rider Calvin Borel. The three-year-old gelding - Canada's top two-year-old male champion in 2008 - was timed in 1:01.80 for the distance over the synthetic surface.
"It went just right," trainer Chip Woolley said. "I really like the way he's striding out on this racetrack. It really seems really kind and he's getting a good hold of it."
Woolley said Mine That Bird's next scheduled workout would be on Oct. 6.
The winner of the Goodwood Stakes earns an automatic berth in the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 7.
