Omaha Beach to Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile


Omaha Beach | Coady

Omaha Beach (War Front) will make his next start in the GI Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, according to Ed Golden's Santa Anita Stable Notes.

“We put our heads together and that's the decision,” Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella said of the Fox Hill Farms colorbearer.

Omaha Beach worked four furlongs in :48.20 (8/29) at Santa Anita Oct. 16. Scratched from the GI Kentucky Derby with an entrapped epiglottis, he returned to the races in style with a dramatic head victory in the GI Santa Anita Sprint Championship S. Oct. 5.
