Hofburg was the second place finisher at the all-important Florida Derby.

His speed figures are improving and he comes into the race third off the layoff on the form cycle.  His trainer, Ray Mott, is among the best in the business.

Hofburg was described as "smooth as silk" in Sunday's workout.

Hofburg went through splits of :13.20, :24.60 and :36.20, according to Churchill Downs clockers, with gallop-out times of 1:01.20 for five-eighths and 1:14.80 for six furlongs.

“He looked like he went off well and he joined his company a little bit early – the company was maybe going a little slow the first eighth of a mile – but he looked smooth as silk coming by me," Mott said. "Approaching the wire he looked really good, switched leads, went into the turn and galloped out well around the turn.”

Hofburg galloped out nearly the length of the backstretch.

“He has a lot of energy.  That's not something we made him do, we just let him do it. We wanted him to work out pretty good around the turn and keep going and just have a steady gallop-out, which is what he did and he does that as well as anything.

“It was a nice, useful work, the kind of work that you like to see right on top of a race. He looked, visually, as good as you could look. The main thing is that they're doing it easily, well within themselves, and he wasn't being pushed to do it, he was just doing it on his own.”
