Caracortado works for Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint


Caracortado works five furlongs

Caracortado, the winner of the Grade 2 Del Mar Mile in August, worked five furlongs in 1:00 on Sunday for the BC Turf Sprint. A 4-year-old gelding, Caracortado galloped out six furlongs in 1:14, according to trainer and co-owner Mike Machowsky.

Joe Talamo is scheduled to ride Caracortado, who has not started in a turf sprint since a win in an optional claimer over six furlongs on turf at Hollywood Park in November 2010. Through most of 2011, Caracortado raced from a mile to 1 1/8 miles on turf, including a win in the Sunshine Millions Turf over 1 1/8 miles at Santa Anita in January.
