On Fire Baby Works Toward Fleur de Lis

Anita Cauley’s homebred On Fire Baby continued her preparations for the $175,000-added Fleur de Lis Handicap (GII) with a seven-furlong breeze in 1:26.20 on the fast main track at Churchill Downs on Saturday morning.
 
Working under regular rider Joe Johnson, On Fire Baby recorded fractions of :13, :25.20, :37.20 and 1:01.80 and galloped out a mile in 1:40.60.
 
“She worked great and now she’s back in her stall munching on hay,” Cauley said following the work. “She seems really happy. Knock on wood, everything is good.”
 
On Fire Baby began her 2013 campaign with a half-length victory in the Apple Blossom (GI) and then finished a head behind Authenticity in the La Troienne (GII) at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Oaks Day.
 
“I was so proud of her,” Cauley said. “Both of those fillies wanted to win so badly and that’s what horse racing is all about.”
 
A 4-year-old gray or roan daughter of Smoke Glacken, On Fire Baby completed the Pocahontas (GII) – Golden Rod (GII) double at Churchill Downs as a juvenile. She has won half of her 10 starts and has earned $720,308.
