Aikenite Works Five Furlongs

Dogwood Stable’s Aikenite tuned up for an anticipated run in the May 15 Preakness Stakes (gr. I) by working five furlongs in company in 1:01 2/5 at Churchill Downs May 9.


With exercise rider Kevin Willey up, Aikenite came on to the fast track a little after 6:30 a.m. (EDT) and then went about his business with workmate Megaholtz. Fractions for the work were :12 3/5, :25 1/5, :37 3/5, :49 2/5, with a six-furlong gallop-out time of 1:15. The move was the ninth fastest of 19 at the distance.
