Catholic Boy Shows Good ‘Energy Level’ In First Work Since Breeders’ Cup

Trainer Jonathan Thomas reported Saturday that multiple Grade 1 stakes-winning Catholic Boy is on schedule for a late-spring return to racing after breezing Friday for the first time since finishing off the board in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) Nov. 3 at Churchill Downs.

Catholic Boy breezed three-furlongs in 39.40 seconds Friday at Bridlewood Farm in Ocala, FL.

“He went off by himself. I was just looking for a little something, but I was happy with his energy level,” Thomas said. “We were committed to giving him 90 days off and we did that. We’re right on schedule right now. If we have two good months, I think we could be looking for something in May or June, something like that.”

The 4-year-old More Than Ready colt launched his career at Gulfstream Park July 20, 2017 with a two-length debut victory and has gone on to win four graded stakes the past two years, including triumphs in the Belmont Derby (G1) on turf and the Travers (G1) over Saratoga’s main track last year.
