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
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.
