Prepping for his final start in the Breeders' Cup, To Honor and Serve turned in a sparkling four furlong work Oct. 13 at Belmont Park. To Honor and Serve, who will begin his stud career at Gainesway Farm in 2013, got the four furlongs in :47.17 seconds, the best of 81 horses that worked the same distance.
"He's just a fast horse," Mott said of To Honor and Serve after his breeze on Saturday morning.
Trained by Bill Mott, To Honor and Serve will wind up his stellar career in the Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) on Nov. 3 at Santa Anita Park. The Live Oak Plantation colorbearer has wins in the Woodward S. (G1) and Westchester H. (G3) this year, and also counts the Cigar Mile H. (G1), Remsen S. (G2), and Nashua S. (G2) among his conquests. His career earnings mark stands at $1,798,840.
Mott added that To Honor and Serve will breeze at Belmont each of the next two weekends before shipping to Southern California on Oct. 29.
