Eligius worked three furlongs from the gate on May 23rd in a flat :35 seconds. The work was the fastest of 26 at that distance. Trainer Tom Wenzel tentatively pointing Gus towards late June for his first start, as a result, his training moves are scheduled to get progressively longer in the coming weeks .

Speed in the morning doesn't necessairly equate to wins...but it certainly doesn't hurt.
