Royal Mo on Worktab


Shirreffs Undecided About Next Race

Robert B. Lewis Stakes winner Royal Mo worked an easy six furlongs Friday morning in 1:15.40 (12/18) under regular rider Victor Espinoza at Santa Anita.

Trainer John Shirreffs sent the son of Uncle Mo in company with Tiz Adore, who was clocked in 1:17.40.

“I’m very happy with the work,” Shirreffs said.

The move was the second for Royal Mo since he won the Feb. 4 Lewis. On Feb. 16, he went four furlongs in 48:20 (28/133) at SA.

The trainer was non-commital as to whether Royal Mo would run in the San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita on March 11 or the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park March 18. All he's said so far is that he wants to keep Royal Mo and Gormley separated. Both are owned by Jerry and Ann Moss.

“The decision on where and when each horse runs won’t be made until we talk with Dottie (John’s wife and racing manager for the Mosses) and the Mosses,” Shirreffs said.
