Reigning Illinois Horse of Year Work All Week wins Breeders' Cup Sprint
A horse very familiar to those at Hawthorne just let everyone see how good he is on the national stage as Work All Week was victorious in the $1.5 million Xpressbet Breeders' Cup Sprint.
Sent off at odds of 19-1, Work All Week, under Florent Geroux tracked the pace of speedy Fast Anna. Taking over at the top of the stretch, Work All Week was able to hold off the late charge of Secret Circle and Private Zone. The reigning Illinois Horse of the Year, Work all Week is owned by Midwest Thoroughbreds, Inc. and trained by multiple Hawthorne leading trainer Roger Brueggemann.
Hawthorne congratulates Work All Week!
