Grade one champion Mind Your Biscuits came away from a recent bullet breeze unscathed and looks in good shape to make his stateside return in the upcoming $350,000 Belmont Sprint Championship (G2) at Belmont Park on July 8, according to his trainer Chad Summers.
Mind Your Biscuits was a winner his last time out, crossing the finish line of the Dubai Golden Shaeen (G1) in first. During his most recent workout, he was timed running five furlongs in :58.19, which was the fastest time of the day at the distance out of ten horses. He was ridden by jockey Joel Rosario. His quarter-mile and half-mile fractions were timed at :22 and :45 2/5, respectively.
“(It was) a little bit faster than we were looking for, but he did it the right way,” said Summers. “It was about as easy a :58 as there’ll ever be. He galloped out (to six furlongs) in 1:11. It was a good, fine dress rehearsal for what’s going to come July 8. He’s in the best form of his life. He came out of Dubai great. The time off was good for him. He’s raring to go.
“When they work that fast you always have to be a little bit cautious. I came back to the barn about 9:45 last night just to make sure that the feed tub was empty and it was, and he walked good this morning. We’re very excited about where we’re at.”
In 15 career starts, Mind Your Biscuits sports a record of 5-6-2, and has earned a shade over $2 million.
