   Centralinteligence broke through in a big way to earn his way into the starting gate for the GI Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile. An allowance winner at Santa Anita last March, he followed with a strong second in the GIII Los Angeles H. in late May, but failed to build on that performance with a well-beaten sixth in this race last year. Sidelined thereafter, the chestnut returned with a useful fourth behind Comma to the Top (Bwana Charlie) in the five-furlong Cool Frenchy S. May 4. He took another step forward with a good second behind that rival in the GIII Los Angeles H. May 27, and was overlooked a bit while adding another furlong here. Drawn well on the outside, he tracked the pacesetting Comma to the Top from fourth through a half mile in :45.19. With Victor Espinoza aboard, he hit the gas with a sweeping move on the far turn, and leveled off nicely in the stretch to win for fun. “It was nice that he put it all together for us on the right day,” trainer Ron Ellis said. “He ran so poorly in this race last year because he came out of it with a chip in his knee, so he certainly had a good excuse. He had surgery and they actually pulled two chips out of his right front.” Ellis continued, “We're going to skip [Del Mar]. This year we're going to point for the Breeders' Cup Sprint. This was our test today to show if he was good enough to keep pace with some good sprinters. You won't see him run again until the fall meet at Santa Anita. He deserves another chance at a mile, but I just don't see when he's going to get a chance to do it.”
