Pablo Del Monte worked six furlongs in 1:12.20 at Keeneland in advance of shipping Monday to Baltimore for the Preakness.

Pablo Del Monte, scratched off the also-eligibles list in the Derby to await the Preakness, breezed six furlongs Saturday in 1:12.20 over the Polytrack surface at Keeneland.

In company with a 3-year-old filly named High Wire Kitten, Pablo Del Monte went in splits of 12.20, 24.80, 36.60, and 48.40, with a seven-furlong out time of 1:25. He finished well clear of his workmate, who went six furlongs in 1:13.

“Pablo Del Monte is doing absolutely super,” said trainer Wesley Ward.

Pablo Del Monte will be on the same Monday charter as California Chrome.

* A scheduled Saturday workout for Illinois Derby winner Dynamic Impact was delayed by one morning because of the nasty weather. “We’ll try it again,” said trainer Mark Casse.
