It's day two of Control Room: XBTV Live From Santa Anita, presented by Xpressbet. The XBTV.com cameras at the Arcadia, Calif., racetrack will be focused on Breeders' Cup participants throughout the morning as they prepare for the Nov. 4-5 world championship races.
Control Room is on the air, streaming live video from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. EDT (5:30 a.m.-10 a.m. PDT), and you can watch it right here at the Paulick Report each morning leading up to the Breeders' Cup.
On Tuesday, XBTV.com analyst Zoe Cadman provided analysis of workouts by several leading contenders from the barn of Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, including record-setting Grade 1 Travers winner Arrogate, who worked six furlongs in company with another G1 winner, Mor Spirit, getting the distance in 1:11.20. The Juddmonte Farms runner is being targeted for the G1 Classic. Others from the Baffert stable putting in timed breezes were G1 Juvenile hopeful Klimt (six furlongs, 1:11.80), G1 Juvenile Fillies contender Noted and Quoted (five furlongs, :59), and G1 Dirt Mile runner Dortmund (five furlongs, :58.80).
Other Breeders' Cup pre-entered horses who jogged or galloped in front of the XBTV.com cameras included Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist, who is being pointed to the Classic; three-time champion mare Beholder, set to face Eclipse Award-winning fillies Songbird and Stellar Wind in the Distaff; Classic contender Frosted; and reigning Sprint champion Runhappy, who is scheduled to go in the Dirt Mile.
In addition to workouts and analysis, XBTV.com personalities will interview connections of many of the Breeders' Cup horses as the championships approach.
