Within a span of 30 minutes Sunday, trainer Wesley Ward stamped his footprint all over the composition of the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (G2) to be run Nov. 1 at Santa Anita at 5 furlongs.
Breeze Easy’s undefeated Four Wheel Drive took the 6-furlong Futurity (G3) at Belmont Park by three lengths, and shortly afterward Ten Broeck Farm’s Kimari unleashed a last-to-first run here to win the 5½-furlong Indian Summer.
“She’s kicking and bucking on her morning walk,” Ward said Monday morning of Kimari, who beat the boys for the second time in her career. “ ‘The Four Wheeler’ will be arriving soon.”
Both the Indian Summer and Futurity were Breeders’ Cup Challenge races.
