I love that Brian [Lynch] gave me the opportunity on this horse. I’m very happy I won the race for them [connections John Amerman and Brian Lynch]”

John Amerman (owner, Oscar Performance, 1st): “You’re never confident until the finish line but they were very good horses and so we’re delighted Jose could ride so well and beat him.

Arlington International Racecourse Barn Notes: Friday, August 11


Permian Prepared for Secretariat Performance
• Ascend Seeks Second Grade I in Arlington Million
• Rouget’s Duo Get Final Prep Before Million Day

PERMIAN PREPARED FOR SECRETARIAT PERFORMANCE

With Scottish withdrawn from Saturday’s Grade I Arlington Million, the onus is on Mark Johnston trainee Permian to bring home a win for Team Godolphin in the Grade I Secretariat Stakes. If that puts any pressure on the Royal Ascot winner, he has not shown it in his morning gallops at Arlington International Racecourse. Going to the track for the first time without the company of Scottish, the 3-year-old son of Teofilo (IRE) took the change in stride and without turning a hair. After cantering a full lap around the course, the colt strolled through the paddock to school, taking his time before returning to the track and taking another lap. In total he spent about 30 minutes out on the racecourse.

Arrogate Drills Seven Furlongs in 1:25.20 Tuesday at Del Mar


Working on his own with jockey Martin Garcia in the tack, superstar Arrogate clipped off a solid seven-furlong drill in 1:25.20 Tuesday at Del Mar as trainer Bob Baffert and regular rider Mike Smith looked on from the track’s grandstand.

The big, gray colt broke off from the five-furlong pole at 7:55 on an overcast morning and worked about five lanes out from the rail. Track clockers caught him in splits of :25.20, :37.20, :48.40, 1:00.60 and 1:12.60 along the way. He was timed on the gallop out in 1:38.20. The son of Unbridle’s Song easily moved past a pair of unrelated workers down on the rail in the stretch and kept to his business. Garcia gave him a bit of encouragement toward the end of the work.
