Believe You Can Back to Work at Fair Grounds

Brereton Jones’s Believe You Can, who became the fifth Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks winner in its last eight renewals to parlay that score to another in the Grade I Kentucky Oaks five weeks later, recorded her first work back Monday morning at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots since being taken out of training last summer.

The daughter of Proud Citizen ticked off three furlongs in 37.20 under Fair Grounds’ two-time defending jockey champion Rosie Napravnik in what trainer Larry Jones deemed “just giving her a chance to stretch out her legs a little bit.

“She went well,” said Jones Wednesday morning during training hours. “We’ll probably bring her back for another work in about six or seven days.”

Believe You Can has not raced since finishing third in Belmont’s Grade I Mother Goose last June 21.

“Our big 3-year-olds all got the summer off,” said Jones, speaking also of Brereton Jones-owned colts Mark Valeski (runner-up in the Grade II Louisiana Derby and Grade II Risen Star) and Mr. Bowling (winner of the Grade III Lecomte), “so we’ll be firing with them all down here at Fair Grounds again this winter. That should make for some very exciting racing for the city of New Orleans this winter.

“Mark Valeski will probably get his first work back tomorrow (Thursday) or Friday,” Jones concluded, “and Mr. Bowling will probably get his first work back in another 10 days or so.”
