ARCADIA, Calf. - Allicansayis Wow has not sprinted in two years, but after a fast workout Sunday at Santa Anita, trainer Patrick Biancone suggests bettors not overlook the longshot filly s chances in the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Sprint.

"Unbelievable," Biancone said, describing the half-mile workout timed by track clockers in a quick 47.20 seconds. "She works like that all the time; she loves this track."

Despite a six-start U.S. campaign around two turns, Biancone said, "I had the Filly Sprint as the target for her since July; I did not want to sprint before then."

Joe Talamo has regained the mount on Allicansayis Wow. Talamo rode her to victory in a first-level allowance in her U.S. debut April 23 at Hollywood, overcoming an eventful stretch run to win by a neck. The filly subsequently finished third and fifth in the Grade 2 Milady and Grade 1 Vanity, races won by Zenyatta.

Biancone dropped her in class for a second-level allowance win July 11 at Hollywood Park, followed by two starts against males - second in the Grade 2 Del Mar Mile and fifth in the Grade 2 Oak Tree Mile in her most recent start Oct.10.

In other preparations for the Filly and Mare Sprint, Informed Decision worked five furlongs Sunday at Keeneland in 59.60, according to trainer Jonathan Sheppard. It was her second workout since winning the Grade 2 Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes on Oct. 10 at Keeneland. A workout last week at a Kentucky training center was not reported.

"She's come up to the race very well," Sheppard said. Informed Decision has won 10 of 13 races and all 6 starts on synthetic surfaces, including a Keeneland victory April 9 over Ventura, expected to start favored the Filly Mare Sprint favorite.

Free Flying Soul, the likely pacesetter in the Filly and Mare Sprint, is scheduled for a three-furlong blowout Wednesday morning.
