Gulfstream Park: Hansen, O'Prado Again get on track

Hansen has resumed training after a short break following his wire-to-wire victory in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.

Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Hansen and Remsen winner O’Prado Again were out on the track for some routine exercise over the weekend.

Trainer Mike Maker said Hansen just started back in training after taking time off following his game wire-to-wire victory over Union Rags in the Juvenile.

“He never left my barn, but he just took it easy after the Breeders’ Cup,” reported Maker who is scheduled to arrive here later in the week. “We’ll see how it goes over the next several weeks. We’ll take a look at the Holy Bull, and if he’s ready, he’s ready. If not, we’ll probably just wait for the Fountain of Youth.”

The Grade 3 Holy Bull will be run at a mile on Jan. 29.

O’Prado Again concluded his 2-year-old campaign with a pair of victories at 1 1/8 miles for trainer Dale Romans.

“I was going to breeze him over the weekend, but decided to wait until the first of the year,” Romans said when asked about O’Prado Again’s upcoming training schedule. “He’ll have two starts before the Derby, but just when or where they’ll be hasn’t been determined yet.”

Romans also reported that Preakness winner and last year’s Florida Derby runner-up Shackleford is currently at Gold Mark Farm in Ocala, where he’ll start galloping again later this week. Romans said Shackleford, who closed out his outstanding 3-year-old campaign with a second-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, is due to ship in here shortly after Christmas and will be pointed to the Grade 1 Donn on Feb. 11.
