El Kabeir perfect in latest work at Belmont Park
El Kabeir continued his Kentucky Derby (G1) preparations from his New York base with a five furlong workout in 1:00.18, a move termed “perfect” by racing manager Justin Zayat, who added that the gray colt came out of the work in great shape.

Trained by John Terranova, the Scat Daddy colt will stay in New York and work once more prior to shipping to Churchill Downs early on Derby week. 

Along with American Pharoah and Mr. Z, El Kabeir gives Zayat Stables a powerful trio of starters in Derby 141. El Kabeir, who won the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club last November at Churchill, won both the Jerome S. (G3) and Withers S. (G3) this winter at Aqueduct.
