Queen's Plate workers, other stuff

Wednesday and Thursday were busy days for Queen's Plate eligibles (June 25) as several had workouts at Woodbine, Keeneland and Santa Anita.
While several leading Plate contenders have already slipped off the screen there are still many quality runners who continue their training.
WANNA RUNNER, who is expected to compete in the May 13 Lone Star Derby in Texas, had a four-furlong workout at Santa Anita yesterday in :48 4/5. The American-owned and trained gelding by El Corredor has to be considered the early Plate favourite since UNIFICATION, the winterbook favourite, has reportedly had his career put on hold.
At Keeneland, Sam-Son Farms' impressive maiden winning filly FEATHERED DIAMOND (A.P. Indy) worked the second fastest 5 furlongs this morning in 1:00 4/5/ Also, Chiefswood Stable's highly regarded colt PIPERS THUNDER had a bullet workout from the gate, likely in company with older stablemate Alleged Ruler, in a sharp :46 3/5.
Champion 2-year-old EDENWOLD had an easy 5 furlong breeze yesterday at Woodbine in 1:03 2/5 while the improving maiden FOREST LIGHT, owned by Kinghaven Farms, had a bullet 4 furlong prep in :47 4/5. Other Plate hopefuls to work included IGALI, who was just behind Forest Light in a recent Woodbine maiden race.

BEWARE OF THE BEAR - Danny Dion's Bear Stable's added to its large collection of 2-year-old purchases in 2006 at Keeneland on Tuesday when paying $62,000 for a Canadian-bred filly by Alphabet Soup from the Mr. Greeley mare Aspenelle. Some of the 'Bear' juveniles are already working at Keeneland.
