Unbeaten juvenile champion Shared Belief, who missed a scheduled workout Jan. 12 due to an abscess in his right front foot, reportedly was set to work at Santa Anita Park Friday morning but did not.
Asked Friday morning for an update on the gelding’s status, trainer and co-owner Jerry Hollendorfer said, “There is no update.” When approached again later, the Hall of Fame conditioner said, “I don’t have any news for the next 15 days.”
Named champion male 2-year-old of 2013 last Saturday, Shared Belief had been scheduled to make his 3-year-old debut in the Grade II Robert B. Lewis Stakes on Feb. 8.
Owned by a partnership that includes sports radio personality Jim Rome, the dark bay Candy Ride gelding has won all three of his career outings by open lengths including a 5 3/4-length win in the Grade I CashCall Futurity at Hollywood Park on December 14.
