GI Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile runner-up Jesus' Team (Tapiture) worked a bullet five furlongs in :59.75 (1/6) Saturday at Palm Meadows in preparation for the GI Pegasus World Cup Jan. 23.
“He was very sharp. It was an amazing workout and an amazing gallop out too,” trainer Jose D'Angelo said. “I am very happy with the work today. I think we will have a big chance in the Pegasus World Cup.”
The conditioner added, “He will have two more breezes, six furlongs next week and four furlongs the next week. Then, he will be ready for the Pegasus.”
Third in the GI Preakness S. Oct. 3, Jesus' Team was second in the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile Nov. 7 and won the Claiming Crown Jewel S. Dec. 5.
