● GI Breeders’ Cup F/M Sprint contender Covfefe (Into Mischief) covered six panels at Churchill Downs in 1:12.20. The GI Test S. heroine worked in splits of :12.40, :24.60, :36.60, :48 and :59.80 under exercise rider Fernando Espinoza. She galloped out seven furlongs in 1:25.40 and completed the work with a one-mile time of 1:40.60, according to Churchill Downs clocker John Nichols.

“She’s a naturally fast filly and today’s work was very strong on all accounts,” trainer Brad Cox said. “She galloped out very strong around the turn and that was by design. She worked six furlongs but started at the five-furlong pole. It was a very strong move.”

● ‘TDN Rising Star’ Dennis’ Moment (Tiznow) prepped for the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile with a best-of-65 five panels in :58.60 beneath the Twin Spires. The GIII Iroquois S. romper went in splits of :11.80, :23.40, 35 and :46.80 with a six-furlong gallop out of 1:11.40 before concluding his work with a seven-...

Constitution, by Tapit from Baffled, by Distorted Humor, is the new rising star in the WinStar stallion barn. As of Thursday, Constitution was ranked second behind American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile) on the first-crop sire list with less than $25,000 separating the two as the high-dollar and game-changing Breeders’ Cup races loom in a few weeks, but he leads the list with three graded winners, one of which is Gl Champagne S. winner Tiz the Law, a leading juvenile colt this year. Constitution stood his first season at stud in 2016 for $25,000 and was down to $15,000 by 2019, but will cover mares at a $40,000 fee for next year based on the success he’s shown so far. WinStar has had “over 100 applications without soliciting,” said Elliott Walden, the farm’s president, CEO, and racing manager by phone on Thursday. Nothing speaks of success like demand.

Sweet N Discreet (Discreet Cat–West Side Dancer, by Gone West), dam of GII Jessamine S. heroine Sweet Melania (American Pharoah), is one of three new supplements to the Nov. 5 Fasig-Tipton November Sale. Offered by Lane’s End as Hip 216 in foal to Liam’s Map, the chestnut won four of 12 starts, including the Florida Sunshine Millions Distaff and was runner-up in the GII Sabin S. en route to amassing earnings of $366,447. The half-sister to GSW Travelin Man summoned $1.1 million at the 2014 FTKNOV Sale.

The other two supplements are both weanlings. Hill ‘n’ Dale sells Hip 215, a Malibu Moon colt out of GSW Win McCool (Giant’s Causeway), making him a half-brother to GSP Cool Beans (Candy Ride {Arg}) and the dam of MGISW Magnum Moon (Malibu Moon). Hip 217 is a son of Keen...

Purely Hot (Pure Prize–Wood Not, Kissing Kris), the dam of Grade I winner Eight Rings (Empire Maker), has been supplemented to Book 1 of the Keeneland November Sale. The 11-year-old mare is in foal to Union Rags and sells as Hip 274G with Taylor Made.

“We are excited to offer another exceptional broodmare in Purely Hot,” WinStar Farm President, CEO and Racing Manager Elliott Walden said. “Two years ago, we sold the dams of four Grade I winners at Keeneland and hope to replicate their success.”

Purely Hot won 12 races, including the GIII Whimsical S., and earned $426,905. She was purchased by WinStar for $250,000 in foal to Bodemeister at the 2014 Fasig-Tipton November Sale. Eight Rings, a $520,000 KEESEP buy, earned the ‘TDN Rising Star’ nod for his debut win and romped by six lengths last out in the GI American Pharoah S. Sept. 27. He is one of the early favorites for the GI...

Officials at Breeders’ Cup Limited have announced that they will not allow trainer Jerry Hollendorfer to participate in this year’s World Championships at Santa Anita, keeping with The Stronach Group’s ban on him racing horses under his name at the Arcadia oval and its other properties.

The following statement was released Friday:

“Breeders’ Cup leads by example in the conduct of Thoroughbred racing at the highest levels of safety and integrity for its athletes. We have partnered with Santa Anita to implement extensive reforms related to medication practices, testing protocols, veterinary exams, injury management, onsite requirements and racing surface testing in preparation for the 2019 World Championships. Earlier this year, The Stronach Group made the decision to prohibit Jerry Hollendorfer from participating at all TSG-owned tracks, including Santa Anita. As announced by the Chairman of the Board, Fred Hertrich, and consistent with Santa Anita’s position as host...

The yellow-and-black silks of Kaneko Makoto Holdings Co. were carried to victory by the late, great Deep Impact (Jpn) in the 2005 G1 Kikuka Sho (Japanese St Leger) and the owner will have every chance to double his tally in the staying feature in the form of Velox (Jpn) (Just a Way {Jpn}) Sunday afternoon at Kyoto Racecourse.

Out of the top three just once in his eight career trips to the post to date, Velox–a ¥48 million ($421,440) purchase as a JRHA Select Sale yearling–landed a pair of early-season listed races over the metric mile and a quarter and was a head second to the G1 Tenno Sho (Autumn)-bound Saturnalia (Jpn) (Lord Kanaloa {Jpn}) in the G1 Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas) in April. Third in the G1 Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby) in his first try at 12 furlongs, the bay colt was freshened and resumed with a strong runner-up effort to Saturnalia in the G2 Kobe Shimbun Hai (2400m) Sept. 22.

Trainer Willie Mullins has referred to Wicklow Bloodstock Ltd.’s Wicklow Brave (GB) (Beat Hollow {GB}) as “utterly unique,” and so he is.

The probable favorite in Saturday’s GI Grand National at the Far Hills Races in New Jersey, Ireland-based Wicklow Brave has done it all. He has won a Group 1 race on the flat, he has won a Group 1 hurdle race, and he now is conquering steeplechase fences in a career that has banked more than $1.3-million for Wicklow Bloodstock’s Nick Peacock.

His career purses more than double those of his 11 opponents in the 2 5/8-mile Grand National, including Sideways Stable’s Jury Duty (Ire) (Well Chosen {GB}), who is returning to America for a shot at a second Grand National win after last year’s 3 1/4-length victory.

Wicklow Brave, now 10, heads an international contingent that makes up half of the Grand National field, either based overseas or making their first Stateside start for American owners and...

NEWMARKET, UK—One visitor to Tattersalls on Friday observed that it was like being in a popular holiday resort out of season. Certainly the atmosphere was less charged than that sustained during the buzz of Books 1 and 2, but a fresh crowd had arrived in Newmarket for the second half of the week and there was still plenty of activity around the sales ground, albeit at a more modified level.

Among the diehards who had weathered the full fortnight—and that required full waterproofs on many days, as the rash of race abandonments across England and a sloppy Champions Day will attest to—there were of course still most of the main breeze-up crew present along with a decent sprinkling of trainers.

Of the former, Johnny Hassett provided the day’s financial highlight, when having the final wave of the catalogue at 75,000gns for lot 1739. Thunder rumbled loudly across the Newmarket sky during the afternoon, but...
