             === Great Attack set for Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint ===
 
 Lexington,  KY (Sports  Network) -  Trainer Wesley  Ward had  5-year-old Great
 Attack work Thursday morning at Keeneland in advance of the Breeders' Cup Turf
 Sprint on Nov.3.
 
 With  Blake  Shinn riding. Great  Attack covered five-furlongs in 1:02.60 over
 Keeneland's  turf  course. Owned  by Houyhnhnm Stable,  the 5-year-old has not
 started since winning the Twin Spires Turf Sprint at Churchill Downs on May 5.
 
 "He  was about  ready to run in the  Woodford (at Keeneland on Oct. 6) but our
 ultimate  goal  is the Breeders' Cup  and I thought  it best that we train him
 into it," Ward said. "I didn't want to send him to California because the turf
 is  hard  out there. This  is really easy  and kind on  his feet and plus it's
 deeper  so  you get  a lot more  out of the  work. I  was really happy with it
 today."
 
 Great  Attack,  fourth in  last year's  Turf Sprint, will  be making his first
 start at Santa Anita in the Breeders' Cup race. In 17 career starts he has six
 wins and four seconds for $378,010.
 
 The 5-year-old is scheduled to have another workout at Keeneland next week and
 head for California on Oct. 28.
