The Pamplemousse Puts in a Bullet Work at Santa Anita

The Pamplemousse
worked 3 furlongs Tuesday morning in :34.80 -- the fastest of 13 works at the distance. He took his time walking back to trainer Julio Canani's barn, just ambling along under jockey Alex Solis, checking out the scenery and other horses in his usual, relaxed style!

It was his final blowout before Saturday's Santa Anita Derby. Also working Tuesday morning were Derby rivals Pioneer of the Nile, who went 4 furlongs in :47.60 for trainer Bob Baffert, and Chocolate Candy, who also worked 4 furlongs, in :48.60, for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer.
