The Word On White Abarrio

April 30: Weather delayed final prep workouts Saturday at Gulfstream, but the track dried and the workouts were held later in the day. He was timed in 48.11 seconds, off fractions of :12.66 and :24.24. He galloped out under urging to 1:00.12, with a mile posted at 1:41.64. “He came out of the work in fine shape,” trainer Saffie Joseph said of White Abarrio’s third workout since winning the Florida Derbyon April 2. “I’m so grateful that Gulfstream Park was able to help us out.”

May 3: Trainer Saffie Joseph Jr.: “Everything’s good so far, we like our post. We’re very thankful for where we drew. It’s a good spot, most definitely, now he just has to break well and run his race.”

Betting insight from Dave Bontempo

White Abarrio gave us a lot to like during his dominance in the Florida circuit. He notched a pair of noteworthy victories in the Florida Derby and Holy Bull. White Abarrio showed promise both in the front of the pack and as a stalker, making him an enticing horse to watch at Churchill Downs.

He backed up a career-best Beyer in the Holy Bull with another strong number in the Florida Derby.
