Max Player, Yaupon Already In Southern California To Prepare For Breeders’ Cup Runs

Trainer Steve Asmussen has shipped two of his Breeders’ Cup contenders, Max Player and Yaupon, to Southern California to begin preparations for the World Championships at Del Mar in November, reports bloodhorse.com. Both have begun training at Santa Anita Park, and will remain there approximately a month before heading to Del Mar.

Max Player won the G1 Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park on Sept. 4 and is being pointed to the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Yaupon won the G1 Forego Stakes at Saratoga on Aug. 28 and is being pointed to the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

“Max Player is going to train straight up to the Classic,” Asmussen told bloodhorse.com. “The spacing in his races has proved extremely effective with his Suburban (G2) win and his Jockey Club Gold Cup.

“Yaupon, the same thing. Spacing in his races has been key to getting them both back running at the top of their game.”
