Alternation Back on Oaklawn Worktab

Alternation takes the Pimlico Special

Pin Oak Stable’s Alternation, given a breather after the Hawthorne Gold Cup last October, returned to the worktab Saturday, posting a three-furlong workout in 38 4/5 under regular jockey Luis Quinonez. Last season, the Distorted Humor horse swept Oaklawn’s Essex, Razorback (G3) and Oaklawn (G2) Handicaps before extending his streak to four in the Pimlico Special last May.

“He broke off a little slow, but then did :12 and :12 for the rest of the work,” said trainer Donnie K. Von Hemel. “I thought he looked good doing it. We’ll just let him tell us when he’s ready.”

Alternation won’t defend his title in the Feb. 2 Essex Handicap, but could return in time for the March 9 Razorback, although the April 14 Oaklawn Handicap is the primary goal.
