The undefeated Purple Egg won his first three outings before being sidelined with a recurring fever.

OLDSMAR, Fla. - Promising 3-year old Purple Egg got back to serious training Sunday when he worked a quick five furlongs in 1:01.40 for trainer Jane Cibelli at Tampa Bay Downs. The undefeated Purple Egg won his first three outings, including the Inaugural Stakes here on opening day, before being sidelined with a recurring fever.

Stakes winner It's Me Mom, who hasn't raced since September, topped the five-furlong workers with a 1:01.20 move.
