Answer In is quietly building a nice resume that consists of two Churchill sprints (six and seven furlongs) that ended up being productive MSW races and a two-turn debut in the Springboard Mile that was notable for this $175,000 KEENOV weanling, who dove through at the rail to narrowly miss winning as the 3-5 fave. Trainer Brad Cox has Answer In on target for a sophomore unveiling in the Feb. 17 GIII Southwest S., and he worked the colt in company Sunday with stablemate Gold Standard (Medaglia d’Oro), a Grade III-placed 4-year-old filly who is also pointing for an Oaklawn stakes on the same date. “Both breezed really well,” Cox said. “He’s a good work horse. She is, too. We’ll do a little something again next week.” Cox confirmed jockey Javier Castellano has accepted the return call on Answer In after riding this colt at Remington.
