Pioneer of the Nile Puts in a Bullet Work at Santa Anita

In his final Santa Anita work before shipping to Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby, Pioneer of the Nile worked 4 furlongs in :46.20 on the all-weather track for trainer Bob Baffert on Wednesday morning. His regular exercise rider, Joe Steiner, was up. It was the fastest of 39 recorded works at the distance.

Unfortunately, my video recorder malfunctioned, so I was unable to record the work. However, I can tell you he looked marvelous and seemed to do it quite effortlessly!

I think it safe to say, this is where Baffert starts to bear down.
