=== Dullahan goes through final Breeders' Cup work ===
 Arcadia,  CA (Sports  Network) - Dullahan, trained by Dale Romans, had a final
 workout  Saturday  morning at Santa Anita  prior to this year's Breeders' Cup.
 The 3-year-old went five-furlongs on Santa Anita's main dirt track in a minute
 flat with assistant trainer Tammy Fox in the saddle.
 Last  week Fox  said that after Dullahan  had workouts on both turf and dirt a
 decision  would be made on whether the colt will start in either the Breeders'
 Cup Classic or Turf.
 "I  thought he  went really good," Romans said shortly after the morning work.
 "I  haven't talked to her (Fox) yet, but he went fast and he looked good doing
 "We'll  talk to  her and Jerry (Crawford, owner, who races as Donegal Racing).
 It'll  be  Jerry's decision.  We'll have a  meeting with her  and see what she
 says.  There's no rush,  but by entry time on Monday, we'll have it settled by
 In  his last start, Dullahan was a disappointing fifth in the Jamaica Handicap
 at Belmont Park on grass. He was the 17-10 favorite in the seven-horse field.
 Along  with  the Pacific Classic, Dullahan  captured the Blue Grass Stakes and
 Breeders Futurity on synthetic surfaces.
 In 13 career starts Dullahan has earnings of $1,714,091.
 Romans  also  had 2011  Preakness Stakes winner  Shackleford work Saturday. He
 also  covered five-furlongs with Fox riding in one-minute. Shackleford is pre-
 entered for the Dirt Mile, a race in which he finished second last year.
 Arlington  Million champ  Little Mike  worked five-furlongs  on Santa  Anita's
 grass course in 1:01.80. Little Mike is pre-entered in both the Turf and Mile.
 Later  in  the morning,  the three  horses were shown  off to approximately 80
 horse racing fans at Romans' Santa Anita barn.
 "Shackleford,  he knows  he's  the  king," said  Romans.  "He's an  absolutely
 special  horse. When he won the Preakness, they always have a big party at the
 barn afterwards and there must've been a thousand people come by to pet him."
