Bolt d'Oro breezes at Santa Anita on Oct. 22

Owned and trained by Mick Ruis, 2-year-old Bolt d'Oro is widely regarded as the likely favorite for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Del Mar in two weeks. The Medaglia d'Oro colt put in a five-furlong breeze at Santa Anita Park on Sunday, cruising through five furlongs in 1:01.40 under regular jockey Corey Nakatani.

“I thought it was great,” said Ruis. “Corey knows the horse, and like everyone says, you don't win the race in the morning. It looked like he got something out of it, but not much.

“He's not even breathing (hard). He turned around like he was just on a gallop, so I'm happy; real happy.”

Ruis, who owns Bolt d'Oro with his wife, Wendy, said the bay colt that won the Sept. 30 FrontRunner Stakes by 7 ¾ lengths would breeze another five-eighths at Santa Anita next Sunday, walk here the next day, then “take him down there” for the Juvenile to be run Nov. 4.
