Breaking News ... Breeders' Cup Turf Favorite Workforce Likely to be Scratched

Zipse at the Track has learned from very reliable sources that Workforce, the Epsom Derby and Arc winner, is likely to be scratched from the Breeders' Cup Turf.  The three-year-old son of King's Best was stopped on prematurely during his gallop today on turf that may be too firm for his liking, and it appears there is an issue that will keep him from going post on Saturday.  The English colt trained by Sir Michael Stoute would have been favored to win the $3 million turf race.

The turf course is in awful shape! Sidneys Candy was all over the place. The dirt surface?? The Track Superintendent at Churchill Downs said today that he is going to put 100,000 gallons of water per day, 5x as much as normal, because right now the dirt track is horribly speed biased. Brian, we both know that if that isnt corrected, Zenyatta will have as much chance of winning as Awesome Gem would, zilch. However, it also is possible that they will go too far and ruin the chances of front runners like Haynesfield and Quality Road to get the distance. All the folks who act like dirt is consistent and fair obviously didnt pay attention to the last Breeders Cup at CD, where every single dirt race for two days except the Classic, the last race on the second day, was won by horses right on the rail. What a travesty if history has to judge these great horses on results from a heavily biased dirt track.
