LAU­REL PARK: Gary Bar­ber, Wach­tel Sta­ble and Terp Rac­ing’s Still Hav­ing Fun, a Grade 2 win­ner of $516,653 in ca­reer purses, put in his fi­nal tuneup Sun­day morn­ing for his 4-year-old de­but in the $250,000 Gen­eral Ge­orge on Satur­day. The bay son of Old Fash­ioned breezed 5 fur­longs in 1 minute, 1 sec­ond over a fast main track with jockey An­gel Cruz in the irons, rank­ing sec­ond of 11 horses. Cruz also worked Still Hav­ing Fun be­fore his most re­cent start, a third­place fin­ish in the Mal­ibu on Dec. 26 at Santa Anita Park. “Af­ter the race in Cal­i­for­nia, a big ef­fort out there, we got him back and kept him in train­ing but let him down ever so slightly. Af­ter the Mal­ibu, our planned tar­get was the Gen­eral Ge­orge,” trainer Tim Keefe said. “To­day’s work went well. It went ac­cord­ing to plan with him.” Sun­day was the third work at Lau­rel for Still Hav­ing Fun since the Mal­ibu. He re­turned to the tab with a half-mile in 47.40 sec­onds Jan. 27 and went 5 fur­longs in 1:01 on Feb. 3.
