Juvenile: Terrain has solid work


At Keeneland, Terrain, runner-up in the Lane's End Breeders' Futurity runner-up worked four furlongs in 48.20 seconds Saturday morning under exercise rider Alejandro Gonzalez. Terrain worked in company with the maiden winning 2-year-old Moral.

"Everything went fine. He galloped out in a minute and change, he was in the bridle all the way," trainer Al Stall said. "The rider said he never gave it up at any point in time, which is good."

Stall said the decision to run in the Juvenile was made after the likes of Vineyard Haven, Charitable Man, and Run Away and Hide all defected from the race. The Juvenile favorite figures to be Square Eddie, to whom Terrain ran second in the Futurity.

"He could go one direction or the other," Stall said of Square Eddie, whose Futurity effort was his first start in this country. "Our horse runs his race every time."

Terrain was scheduled to ship to Southern California on Wednesday.
