(Gulfstream entrance)

Hotshot American 3yo NO BIZ LIKE SHOBIZ worked very fast at Gulfstream on Saturday –

guess who worked just a tick slower of the 28 horses working 5 furlongs that morning? Top Canadian 3yo filly SEALY HILL (Point Given), winner of the Glorious Song Stakes at Woodbine in November. She’s owned and bred by Eugene Melnyk and trained by Mark Casse.

Promising 3yo EASTERMAN (Smart Strike), trained by Mike DePaulo, has shown up on the worktab in Florida (Palm Meadows) and the gelding is one of numerous exciting sophomore prospects for the Queen’s Plate for 2007. It’s one of the most intriguing years for 3yos in Canada, too bad we can’t have a future bet!

Other notable Canadians showing up in the works down south include JAMBALAYA, our turf star from the Catherine Day Phillips barn and PIPERS THUNDER, last year’s Plate Trial winner who was placed 2nd in the Prince of Wales. Champion PALLADIO, trained by Roger Attfield, worked at Payson on Sunday at six furlongs.

Continuing to look good is HIGH ACT, a Canadian-bred 3yo by El Prado who won his maiden in his 2nd career start at Calder last month with a 76 Beyer Figure. The Stronach Stables colt had another quick workout on the weekend.
Speaking of the Stronach team, its Awesome Again is on a roll as SUGAR SHAKE did indeed take yesterday’s El Encino, the second graded stakes winner for the sire at Santa Anita on the weekend.

Red-hot MALCOLM PIERCE stable should win the 5th at Fair Grounds today with Pink Oak’s GET RICH QUICK, who came home in :23 4/5 in his latest.

Don’t forget to check out some neat pics of friends like BERNARDINI, LEROIDESANIMAUX and other top stallions through the links from About Horse Racing on one of posts on the weekend.

Holiday Monday in the U.S. today and then part 2 of the season premier of ‘24’, Jack is back!!
