Donver Stable’s Inglorious, the 3-1 morning line
favorite for Saturday’s $500,000 Fair Grounds Oaks after finishing
second in the Grade III Rachel Alexandra Stakes here Feb. 19, breezed a
half-mile in :49 Monday morning at Fair Grounds.
“We got everything we wanted,” said trainer Josie
Carroll moments after the morning move. “She was spot-on today.
“I don’t think the outside post (in the Oaks) will hurt her
at all,” said Carroll. “With all the speed in the race to the inside of her, it
should let her get over (to the inside) fairly quickly.”
The other candidate for the Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks on
the work tab Monday morning was Kirk Robison’s Tapit Dancer who went
four furlongs in 50.60 after finishing sixth in the Rachel Alexandra.
