Edenwold works at Santa Anita

Champion 2yo colt of 2005 and Queen's Plate contender EDENWOLD (Southern Halo) worked four furlongs at Santa Anita on Sunday (Apr. 2) morning and is not yet at Woodbine as currently reported.
The colt, owned by Jim and Alice Sapara and trained by Josie Carroll, prepped the distance in :49 1/5 and is expected back at Carroll's Woodbine barn this week.
The same morning, another Sapara/Carroll-trainee, DREAM OF VICTORY (Sword Dance), also a Plate eligible, worked a sharp four furlongs from the gate in :48 1/5.
In other Plate news, Mike Pegram's WANNA RUNNER (El Corredor) earned a 92 Beyer Figure for his Winstar Derby victory at Sunland Park last weekend (see stories below), well shy of Barbaro's 103 Beyer for his Florida Derby win at Gulfstream Park on Saturday.
Speaking of Beyer Figures, Stonerside Stable's DANIELTOWN (Pioneering), who won the Jacques Cartier prep on opening day at Woodbine, posted a lofty 104 Beyer for his gritty win over Stanley Hough's TERRIFIC CHALLENGE (Royal Academy) and champion JUDITH'S WILD RUSH (Wild Rush)
Should be a super renewal of the Jacques Cartier on April 15.
Last year's champion 3-year-old colt, PALLADIO (Lycius), is up to six furlongs in his workouts having put up a 1:18 1/5 move at Payson Park in Florida on Monday morning.
And, Canadian-bred POINT OF IMPACT (Point Given), not yet Plate eligible but a promising colt who was recently eased up in a botched grass experiment, sizzled six furlongs on April 2 in 1:11 4/5 at Santa Anita for trainer Bob Baffert.

    Great to see that the Queen's Plate this year will be on TSN. Hopefully they'll promote it aggressively during their World Cup broadcasts in June. That could bring in a lot of viewers.
