Game On Dude, the expected Breeders' Cup Classic pacesetter, posted a solid five-furlong workout Tuesday at 9 a.m. at Santa Anita while in company with an unidentified workmate also trained by Bob Baffert.

Game On Dude broke off four lengths behind his workmate at the 4 1/2-furlong pole; they finished on even terms. Baffert timed Game on Dude in 58.80 seconds; clockers credited the 4-year-old with a half-mile work in 46.80, breezing.

Martin Garcia worked Game On Dude; Chantal Sutherland will ride him in the Breeders' Cup. Sutherland has ridden Game On Dude four times, winning two Grade 1's, including the Santa Anita Handicap and the Goodwood Stakes in his most recent start Oct. 1.
