Creative Cause schooled in the paddock during the first race Tuesday afternoon. Trainer Mike Harrington said, "I gave him 30 days off after the Breeders' Cup. He just walked during that time and he hasn't missed a beat in the time back from that. This isn't my first rodeo. I've had good horses before. This is my best one, but probably my favorite is still Swiss Yodeler, who got me my first Grade 1."
