Zo Impressive Ready For Alabama

Live Oak Plantation’s Zo Impressive was one of three contenders for the Grade 1, 1 ¼-mile Alabama on the worktab on Monday, turning in a 1:01.90 five-furlong breeze on the main track.

 

“She worked very well this morning,” said trainer Tom Albertrani. “It looks like she’s keeping in good form, and that’s all we can ask for.”

 

Zo Impressive, winner of the Grade 1 Acorn in May at Belmont, will attempt to turn the tables on Questing in the Alabama. In the Grade 1, 1 1/8-mile TVG Coaching Club American Oaks on July 21, Zo Impressive was second to Questing by 4 ¼ lengths. 

 

“I don’t think [Zo Impressive will] have a problem with [the Alabama’s 1 ¼-mile distance],” said Albertrani. “It looked like she was finishing in the last eighth of a mile in the Coaching Club. She was gaining a little bit late in the race. Maybe that was from [Questing] starting to get tired and drifting out, but I don’t see why she wouldn’t go a little further. She’s been very consistent; she’s been 1-2 in all of her starts. Hopefully she’ll run her race again.”

 

Also breezing on the main track was Kentucky Oaks winner Believe You Can, who went four furlongs in 1:02.78 with jockey Rosie Napravnik aboard. Sea Island earned a bullet for her 48.20 four-furlong breeze on the Oklahoma training track.

 

Grace Hall, winner of the Delaware Oaks, arrived in trainer Tony Dutrow’s Saratoga barn from Delaware Park on Monday. Dutrow said Grace Hall will jog tomorrow.
