Gayego schooled in the starting gate and then galloped 1 1/4 miles under exercise rider Jody Pieper. Trainer Paulo Lobo said, "My part is nearing the finish. He's as good as he can be for this and he's coming up to it as well as we could have wanted. On Saturday I won't give Mike Smith (jockey) any instructions. That's the nice part of having a rider like him. He knows the horse and he knows what to do. When the race comes, I just say: 'Mike, I've done my job, now you go do yours.'"
