Chad Brown worked his trio of GI Breeders' Cup F/M Turf runners: Grand Jete (GB) (Danili {GB}) breezed a half-mile in :49.67 in company over the inner turf (video); Dacita (Chi) (Scat Daddy) covered four furlongs in :50.02 on the main track (video); and popular MGISW Lady Eli (Divine Park) went five furlongs over the inner turf in 1:00.09 in company (video).

GI Breeders' Cup Turf contenders and GI Arlington Million top two Beach Patrol (Lemon Drop Kid) and Fanciful Angel (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) worked in company over the inner turf, covering five panels in 1:02.23 (video).

MGISW Practical Joke (Into Mischief) worked five furlongs in company in 1:01.87 in preparation for the GI Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (video).

GIII Miss Grillo S. heroine Significant Form (Creative Cause) prepped for the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf with a five-furlong work in :59.76 over the inner turf in company (video).

MGISW Paulassilverlining (Ghostzapper) worked five furlongs in company in 1:01.09 ahead of a tilt in the GI BC F/M Sprint (video); and fellow F/M Sprint runner Carina Mia (Malibu Moon) went a half-mile in :48.78 (video).

GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile contender Good Magic (Curlin) breezed a half-mile in company in :50.91 (video).

Speedy New York-bred Mind Your Biscuits (Posse) put in his final preparation for the GI BC Sprint Saturday, covering a half-mile in company in :47.88 (video). “I thought it was fine. It was a useful work, he got what he needed out of it,” said trainer Chad Summers. “If we call the Forego a non-effort, which is what I think it was, I think he had to get a little work in company there, have a little target to get those competitive juices flowing heading into the Breeders' Cup.”

World record setter Disco Partner (Disco Rico) worked an easy three panels in :39.03 Saturday (video) for Christophe Clement in preparation for the BC Turf Sprint. “It was a slow work by design, but he finished well,” said Clement. “He moved great and I'm very happy. He'll have another work next Saturday which will be a bit more serious, but he looked good.”

GI Champagne S. winner Firenze Fire (Poseidon's Warrior) prepped for the BC Juvenile with a half-mile work over the training track in :50.61. “It went good,” trainer Jason Servis said. “Irad [Ortiz] was smiling, and that's always a good sign.”
