Accelerate settles in at Lane's End the day after winning the 2018 Breeders' Cup Classic.

Breeders' Cup Classic winner Accelerate started his workout regimen toward the Pegasus World Cup on Sunday, breezing a half-mile at Santa Anita Park in :49 under assistant trainer Juan Leyva. According to, the 5-year-old Lookin at Lucky horse will have seven or eight more breezes before the Jan. 26 Pegasus, after which he will go to stud in Kentucky.

“It was just the first work to get started,” trainer John Sadler said. “Juan thought his energy was good.”

The Sadler-trained Catapult will tackle the Pegasus Turf, following a third-place effort in the Breeders' Cup Mile behind Expert Eye. He breezed a half in :47.80 on Sunday as well.
