Breeders’ Cup Runner-Up Dayoutoftheoffice Works Toward 2021 Debut In Eight Belles

Siena Farm and trainer Tim Hamm’s Dayoutoftheoffice, runner-up in last fall’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) at Keeneland, took another step toward returning to the races Thursday morning by working 5 furlongs in 1:01.40 over the main track labeled good.

“It was uneventful and good,” Hamm said of the work on a chilly morning in Lexington, Ky. “I got her in :12s all the way around.”

Working on her own shortly after 9 a.m., Dayoutoftheoffice reeled off fractions of :12.20, :24.40, :36.40, :49 and 1:01.40 with a six-furlong gallop out in 1:14 and seven-eighths in 1:28.

Hamm has targeted the 7-furlong, $300,000 Eight Belles (G2) Presented by Smithfield on April 30 at Churchill Downs as the starting point for Dayoutoftheoffice’s 2021 campaign.

“She will have one more work and it will be here or Churchill Downs,” Hamm said.

Dayoutoftheoffice won the G3 Schuylerville Stakes at Saratoga and the G1 Frizette Stakes at Belmont Park before finishing second to Vequist in the Breeders’ Cup. The Into Mischief filly has won three of her four career starts for earnings of $556,500.
