Well Monied worked at Santa Anita early Tuesday morning, for trainer Howard Zucker. Jockey Joel Rosario, who is named to ride Well Monied in the $700,000 American Oaks Invitational on Sunday, was aboard for the work, going 5 furlongs in 1:00 handily.
Well Monied, owned by C.T. Grether, Inc., heads a strong group of local fillies, who will be facing a stellar international field that includes Apple Charlotte trained by Henry Cecil from England, Rare Ransom from the stable of Irish trainer Dermot Weld, and Puttanesca from New Zealand.
