Shared Belief returns to track after Breeders' Cup Classic
By: SPORTS NETWORK
Berkeley, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Eclipse Award winner Shared Belief returned to training Tuesday morning at Golden Gate Fields for his first workout since finishing fourth in the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 1.
Trained by Hall of Famer Jerry Hollendorfer, the 3-year-old gelding worked three furlongs in 36.60 seconds.
"Shared Belief had his first work since the BC Classic going 3F in 36.60. He did it nicely," co-owner Jim Rome posted on his stable's Facebook page. "Great to have him back at the track. Let's see how he comes out of it."
Shared Belief, co-owned by Hollendorfer, was the 5-2 favorite for the Classic, but finished fourth behind Bayern, Toast of New York and California Chrome. The gelding was next to Bayern in the starting gate and was bumped by the Haskell winner at the start. Stewards posted the inquiry sign, but took action against Bayern.
The 2013 champion 2-year-old posted wins this year in the Los Alamitos Derby, Pacific Classic and Awesome Again Stakes. He missed the Triple Crown races with a hoof injury and began his season with an allowance victory at Golden Gate Fields on May 26.
Shared Belief has won seven of eight career starts and banked $1,852,200.
