[Track ratings based on a scale of 1-5 with ‘1’ being the slowest.]

Friday, Race 5 – Encierro

Perri said: “Encierro worked on October 6 for Catherine Day-Phillips in 1:02.60 beating company, Grand Oasis (1:03.20). The rrack was fair rated 3.”

Saturday, Race 8 – Summer Retreat

Perri said: “Summer Retreat worked on October 6 for Andrew Smith in 1:00.8 beating Promise Me Bourbon (1:01). Coming off a stakes debut with an extra half-furlong will benefit him.”

Saturday, Race 10 – Sheikha Reika (FR) 

Perri said: “Sheikha Reika worked on October 11 for Roger Varian – a quarter in :24.80, out in :36.40 – looking absolutely focused, galloping out very strongly.”

Sunday, Race 10 – Dreams Are Free 

Perri said: “Dreams Are Free sizzled in her work on October 6 in :47.80 breezing for Catherine Day Phillips. I have been waiting for this one to come out for a while.”
