Santa Anita Handicap winner Melatonin moved another step closer to his first race since winning the Gold Cup at Santa Anita on June 25 when he worked seven furlongs in 1:27 flat under regular rider Joe Talamo, preparing for the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic at Santa Anita Nov. 5.
“He looked real good,” said David Hofmans, who trains the gelded son of Kodiak Kowboy for owner Susan Osborne, who races as Tarabilla Farms, Inc. “Joe was happy. We're on course. He'll probably work again next Saturday and go from there.”
Added Talamo after the work: “He's good to go.”
