T. Bill Stables’ homebred world champion Cold Cash 123 maintained his peak fitness with a 220-yard work in an excellent :10.87 this morning at Ruidoso Downs.

A GoPro camera was positioned on jockey Roy Baldillez for the workout and the video may be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jcw8VNutag&feature=plcp.

“I’m very happy with it,” said trainer Sleepy Gilbreath of the impressive workout.

The next possible start for the earner of $1,190,281 could be the All American Gold Cup (G3) at Ruidoso Downs on Labor Day weekend or the Go Man Go Handicap (G1) at Los Alamitos.

Cold Cash 123’s ultimate goal this year is the Grade 1, $750,000 Champion of Champions at Los Alamitos in December. He qualified for that 440-yard classic with a three-quarter length win in the Grade 1 Remington Park Championship in his most recent race. He also has a win in the Grade 1 Leo Stakes this year.

Last year, he earned his world championship with Grade 1 wins in the Rainbow Derby at Ruidoso Downs, the Texas Classic Derby at Lone Star Park and The Championship at Sunland Park.

A gelding by Oak Tree Special, Cold Cash 123 has won 11 of 16 starts.
