Sprint: Colebrook ‘Taking A Shot’ With Mr. Crow, Colt Works Three Furlongs In :35.20

KRA Stud Farm’s Mr. Crow completed his major training for the $2 million TwinSpires Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) by working 3 furlongs in :35.20 over a fast track after the morning renovation break.

Working on his own, Mr. Crow covered the final quarter-mile in :23.60 and galloped out a half-mile in :49.20.

“It was just a maintenance move and it was fine,” trainer Ben Colebrook said.

A Keeneland sales graduate, the 4-year-old son of Tapizar has won one of six starts in 2018 since joining the Colebrook barn. In his two most recent ventures into Grade 1 waters, he chased probable Breeders’ Cup Sprint favorite Imperial Hint in the Vanderbilt at Saratoga and the Vosburgh at Belmont Park.

“I know he is going to be a longshot and we are taking a shot,” Colebrook said of Mr. Crow, who finished second in the Vosburgh beaten 1¼ lengths. “I may put blinkers on him and ideally I would like to see him in the first wave.”

Mr. Crow and Colebrook’s other Breeders’ Cup pre-entrants Knicks Go (Sentient Jet Juvenile) and LimousineLiberal (Sprint or Dirt Mile) are scheduled to ship to Churchill Downs early next week.
