Skip Away, brilliant winner of Saturday's Breeders' Cup Classic in California, has arrived in Florida for a rest before being aimed at the Gulfstream Park Handicap in February.

Skip Away is in good shape after his Hollywood Park victory according to Sonny Hine, who trains the colt for his wife, Carolyn.

The couple hope that the grey can eventually lower the all-time earnings record held by Cigar. Accordingly, Skip Away will in 1998 contest only those races exceeding half a million dollars in value.
