By Gulfstream Park Press Staff — Trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. sent C2 Racing Stable and La Milagrosa Stable’s White Abarrio to the Gulfstream Park track Sunday morning to prepare for next Saturday’s $500,000 Ohio Derby (G3) at Thistledown.
The son of Race Day was timed in :50.44 for four furlongs for his fifth workout since finishing well back in the Kentucky Derby (G1).
“It was an easy last work before Ohio. He’s going to ship [Monday],” Joseph said. “We’re ready to bring him back. Obviously, the Derby wasn’t the race we wanted, but we move forward. Hopefully, he bounces back to his best.”
White Abarrio won the Curlin Florida Derby (G1) and Holy Bull Stakes (G3) in his two starts prior to the Run for the Roses.
