Gift Box ‘Excellent’ In Latest Work, To Be Reunited With Rosario In Gold Cup

Santa Anita Handicap winner Gift Box is on course for the Grade I Gold Cup at Santa Anita on Memorial Day after working six furlongs Saturday in 1:13.60.

“It was an excellent work on this track,” said John Sadler, who won two races yesterday to move into third place in the standings, six wins behind leader Doug O’Neill. “He galloped out a mile in 1:41. (Joel) Rosario is coming in to ride him and others for us that day.

“Catapult (Shoemaker Mile) went a minute and change yesterday (1:02). He went very well also. Both the Gold Cup and Shoemaker are good, salty races.”

Probable for the Gold Cup: Core Beliefs, Florent Geroux; Fight On, no rider; Gift Box, Joel Rosario; Lone Sailor, Flavien Prat; Mongolian Groom, no rider; and Vino Rosso, John Velazquez.
