Work All Week, Alsvid work for Smile Sprint


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – A number of potential contenders for the Grade 2 Smile Sprint Handicap on July 5 got in key workouts over the last several days, including reigning division champ Work All Week, who went five furlongs in 59.40 seconds at the Churchill Downs training center on Sunday. The previous morning, Alsvid, who spoiled Work All Week’s 2015 debut with his upset victory in the Grade 3 Aristides on May 30, went a half-mile in 48.20 seconds from the three-eighths pole to the seven-furlong marker, according to Churchill Downs clocker John Nichols, before galloping out five furlongs in 1:00.60 over a sloppy track.
