Rachel Works Easy Half

Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra, with regular exercise rider Dominic Terry aboard, put in her final timed workout in advance of Saturday’s $200,000 New Orleans Ladies this morning, going four furlongs in :49, breezing, over the fast main track at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots.

 

Fair Grounds clockers caught fractional times of :25 1/5 and :37 1/5 en route to the official final time of :49, with a five-furlong gallop-out time of 1:01 4/5.

 

Trainer Steve Asmussen: “It was just an easy half. It’s hard to compare her to anybody else so we just gave her an easy half and let him get along with her and it looked like she went beautiful. She’s a beautiful mover. That’s how she runs and that’s what makes her special. She went over the racetrack very well; it was in great shape this morning. That’s all we could hope for. She got the breeze in, did very well, looked good.”


A full report on today’s workout will be issued along with news on the New Orleans Ladies post position draw later this morning.
