Shared Belief slated for start in Malibu Stakes
By: SPORTS NETWORK
Arcadia, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Eclipse Award winner Shared Belief will close out his 2014 campaign in Santa Anita's opening day Malibu Stakes on Friday, Dec. 26.
Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, Shared Belief will be making his first in eight weeks when he finished fourth in the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 1.
Monday at Golden Gate Fields the 3-year-old gelding worked six furlongs in 1:15, the fastest of the day at the track.
"He'll work again this Monday (at Golden Gate) and ship to Santa Anita Tuesday," the Hall of Fame trainer said.
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 no 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.
