ELMONT, NY – Hall of Fame trainer Todd Pletcher worked his multiple graded stakes-winning 3-year-old Life Is Good a 1/2-mile over the Belmont training track last Saturday in preparation for this coming Saturday’s $300,000 Kelso Handicap (G2), a one-turn mile for 3-year-olds and up.

Owned by CHC Inc. and WinStar Farm, the son of leading sire Into Mischief recorded his 4-furlong move in 48.46 seconds over a fast main track – the 17th-fastest of 132 recorded works at the distance.
This was a second work back for Life Is Good following a game runner-up effort in the H. Allen Jerkens Memorial (G1), where he engaged in a dramatic stretch duel with Jackie’s Warrior before coming up a neck shy of victory.
“I thought he worked super,” Pletcher said. “I was really pleased with the way he went and it looked like he was moving along there really well.”

Unbeaten in his previous 3 efforts, which include victories in the Sham (G3) and the San Felipe (G2) at Santa Anita this winter, Life Is Good will see an increase in ground from the 7-furlong H. Allen Jerkens.
“I think it’s a good progression for him coming off the layoff and the 1 race,” Pletcher said.
While no year-end goal has been announced, a pair of early November Breeders’ Cup races – the Dirt Mile (G1) and the 1 1/4-mile Classic (G1) – are reportedly under consideration, as is the 7-furlong Malibu Stakes (G1) at Santa Anita Park on December 26.
