DEL MAR, Calif. – Champion sprinter Drefong worked a half-mile from the gate Saturday morning at Del Mar, a move that trainer Bob Baffert said was done to get him off the starter’s list following his disastrous run in the Grade 1 Bing Crosby on July 29, when he ducked in soon after the start and dislodged jockey Mike Smith.
