Believe You Can Breezes For Alabama

Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks winner Believe You Can had her first breeze at Saratoga this morning over the Oklahoma training track in preparation for the Grade 1 Alabama on August 18. With jockey Rosie Napravnik on board, the Proud Citizen filly went out shortly after the first renovation break and worked five furlongs in 1:02.10, the fifth-fastest of 13 at the distance.

“Everything was good; she’s done everything real good,” said trainer Larry Jones, who was on hand for the move. “The Alabama has been our goal; now we just have to get it all to come together.”

Bred and owned by Brereton C. Jones, Believe You Can has won six of her 10 starts, including the Grade 3 Tempted at Belmont Park last year and the Grade 2 Fair Grounds Oaks this year prior to the Kentucky Oaks. In her most recent start, she was third behind Zo Impressive in the Grade 1 Mother Goose at Belmont.
