Breeders' Cup Classic contender Code of Honor put in his penultimate workout on Monday, ridden by John Velazquez over a sloppy surface at Belmont Park. The 3-year-old Noble Mission colt covered five furlongs in 1:00.26, according to

“I thought he went awful well,” said trainer Shug McGaughey. “I needed to make sure going out there [to Santa Anita] over that track that I got a good, solid work into him. I wanted to put him in the game a little bit, too.”

Code of Honor will have one more work before the Breeders' Cup, tentatively scheduled for Sunday, after which he will ship to California. This season, the colt has won the G1 Jockey Club Gold Cup, G1 Travers, G3 Dwyer, and G2 Fountain of Youth Stakes, as well as finishing third (elevated to second) in the G1 Kentucky Derby.
