Union Rags at Churchill Downs

Union Rags, 2-1 morning line favorite for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, got acquainted with the Churchill Downs paddock and track for the first time with assistant trainer Peter Brette on board and trainer Michael Matz close by on a pony, Union Rags visited the paddock and then galloped 1 1/2 miles.

"He didn't do any training yesterday since he was traveling, so he was a little fresh this morning. He looks good. He's just been a dream to train. He's got everything you'd want in a racehorse. He's fast, he finds a way to get out of trouble and he's got a great mind. He came out of his last race (a win in the Champagne Stakes) great. We took him back to Fair Hill that night and he ate right up. The next morning he was looking for me."
