“He’s ready for the race and he was ready for the Pegasus (World Cup Invitational),” Navarro said. “He was one of the horses that I took over (to the race last time) and absolutely everything was right, but then everything in the race just turned the other way and he never had a chance to show who he is. He’s a great horse. Whether he can go that far (1800m), I’m not sure, but that race did not tell us.
“(Jockey) Irad Ortiz (Jr.) worked him the other day and said he was ready,” Navarro said. “He galloped out (to 1200m after working 1000m in a bullet 58.80) in 1:10. We will just turn the page with him. He didn’t have any luck (in the Pegasus) and we will hope for the best at Meydan.”
