Defending Classic champion and reigning Horse of the Year galloped on the main track and then schooled in the paddock under exercise rider Carlos Rosas. Rosas said, "He's a superstar. He's getting over the ground here very well. I know there's a big difference between the mornings and afternoons, but he's showing us very good signs. I don't think the (Pro-Ride) is going to be a problem at all."
