Rachel Alexandra: Applauding Will Scratch

Rachel Alexandra: Applauding Will Scratch
Ramona Bass’s undefeated sophomore filly Applauding will not participate in Saturday’s Grade III, $200,000 Rachel Alexandra Stakes, trainer Al Stall Jr. said Monday after a four-furlong breeze in :50 4/5.

 

“She didn’t work to my satisfaction and I’m going to scratch her,” Stall said. “She just wasn’t herself. I don’t know if something’s bugging her internally or what. She just wasn’t right.”

 

Applauding was a nine-length debut winner at Keeneland in October and followed that with a six-length allowance win at Fair Grounds on Dec. 2 but hasn’t raced since. She was the morning line favorite in last month’s $125,000 Silverbulletday Stakes but scratched the day of the race due to a minor case of colic.
