Putting in his first serious work since returning to the United States, Group 1 Dubai Golden Shaheen winner Mind Your Biscuits breezed three furlongs in 36.87 seconds on the main track under the watchful eye of trainer Chad Summers.
“He looked very good this morning, I was pleased with the way he moved,” said Summers. “He didn’t work with blinkers today, we’ll get to that point about a week from the race to tighten him up because he really puts in fast works with them on, but we just wanted to begin the process of getting him ready for the [Grade 2] Belmont Sprint [July 8] and today was a good step in that direction.”
Following the trip to Meydan Racecourse in Dubai, Mind Your Biscuits got a short vacation at Taylor Made Farm in Kentucky before arriving at Belmont. Summers added that he was looking to chart a similar course to California Chrome following his victory in the 2016 Dubai World Cup, from which he returned to win three consecutive graded stakes races, including the Grade 1 Pacific Classic.
“We liked the way California Chrome was handled following his win in Dubai and it worked for them so we’re hoping it’ll also work out for us, but he’s come back from that break great and we’ll start with the Belmont Sprint. Our long-term goal this summer at Saratoga in the [Grade 1] Forego [August 26].”
