Arcadia, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Texas Red had
a six-furlong workout Saturday morning at Santa Anita in preparation for his

won the Juvenile as a 13-1 longshot. “Some horse joined the group at the half-

familiarize him with the gate. Today was the real thing.”
Texas Red has two wins, a second and a third from five starts for $1,192,300.
