Catholic Boy finished fourth in his first start since a runner-up effort in the Grade 2 Suburban on the main track July 6 at Belmont. He was returning to turf for the first time since capturing the Grade 2 Dixie on May 18 at Pimlico. But trainer Jonathan Thomas said Catholic Boy, the winner of the 2018 Grade 1 Runhappy Travers, could return to dirt with a potential start in the Grade 1, $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic at 1 ¼ miles on November 2 at Santa Anita Park.

“Overall, he was a little bit even around there. I was hoping, turning for home, he would kick on a little,” Thomas said. “It looked like he stayed on and went ahead and galloped out well. He came back with a lot of energy, so we'll get back to the barn and look at him. He may have needed a tightener going a mile and an eighth. We'll see if he takes a step forward. I'm not disappointed but I'm not thrilled, either.

“This could be one of those instances where we get back in his training and he's really taken a big step forward,” he added. “He was very even and he looked like a horse that getting a mile and a quarter wouldn't be an issue. He galloped out well. He was just a little one-paced. Watching that it would scream [he needs] a little more real estate. The [Breeders' Cup] Mile would be a little bit quick for him. [The Classic] would be the most likely scenario, but we'll have to talk to everybody.”

 thanks for the information.   Would love to see him in the Breeders Cup if he is fit to be there: his connections seem to make good decisions for him, so we shall see!!!

I'm excited about Omaha Beach!  Still hoping they race him all of next year.  His owner said he's willing if Spendthrift is.
