ELMONT, N.Y. -- "I hear McAnally's horse worked pretty fast," Jack Van Berg said around his breakfast chicken wings.Everybody at Belmont Park had heard that the champion mare Bayakoa, trained by Ron McAnally, worked fast in her final exercise before the $1 million Breeders' Cup Distaff on Saturday. In gossipy racetrack tradition, they were suggesting she worked too fast for her own good."I told [jockey Aaron] Gryder to let her do what she wants," McAnally said. She wanted to run: seven furlongs in 1:22 4/5, the kind of time that wins races.
