DEL MAR, Calif. - Flashback, considered one of the best 3-year-olds in the country before being injured earlier this year, is back in training for trainer Bob Baffert. He had his first drill since returning on Monday at Betfair Hollywood Park, traveling three furlongs in 37.20 seconds.

Flashback, winner of the Robert Lewis Stakes in February, came out of his runner-up finish in the Santa Anita Derby in April with a knee chip.

Debut winners prep for stakes

Diamond Bachelor and Station House, impressive debut maiden winners on the turf earlier this meet, both worked Monday at Del Mar on Polytrack in preparation for stakes races on closing day, Sept. 4.

Diamond Bachelor, trained by Patrick Biancone, worked five furlongs in 1:01.60. He could run in either the Grade 1, $300,000 Del Mar Futurity on the main track, or remain on turf for the $100,000 Oak Tree Juvenile Turf. Both are Sept. 4.

Station House is being pointed to the Oak Tree Juvenile Turf, according to trainer Richard Mandella, who sent the colt through a five-furlong drill in 1:01.80.
