Forever Together Prepares for Glens Falls


Forever Together, the champion turf female of 2008, worked five furlongs on the Oklahoma turf course Friday morning in preparation for her next scheduled start in the Grade 3, $100,000 Glens Falls on Closing Day, September 6.


Trained by Hall of Famer Jonathan Sheppard, Forever Together was clocked in 1:02 for five furlongs, ranking 17th of 34 horses at the distance.


“She’s very good. I’m very happy with her,” Sheppard said. “She’s been training well, and she came out of her last race well. We probably didn’t have the smoothest of trips in that one, to be honest.”


Attempting to become the first horse to win three consecutive runnings of the Grade 1 Diana Handicap, Forever Together stumbled out of the gate, then ran into traffic trouble nearing the quarter pole before making an inspired late run to finish third, a nose behind Shared Account, who was a head shy of winner Proviso.


“The horse she was directly behind swung way out on the turn, and we went up the inside of her,” Sheppard said. “As soon as we did that, she came swinging back in and we got bounced around a little bit. Once that situation quieted down, she put her head down and ran hard to the line. I think she was in front a little after the wire.”


A 6-year-old daughter of Belong to Me, Forever Together had two wins, two seconds and two thirds from six starts in 2009. She is 0-for-3 in 2010, with two seconds and a third, beaten a total of one length.


“You know how it goes,” Sheppard said. “We’ve had some good luck and some not so good luck. But, I think she’s the same horse probably as she’s always been; very honest and a pleasure to be around. She’s quite a character and we all love her in the stable.”
