Rachel Alexandra worked a half mile in 49 seconds flat early this morning at the Fair Grounds in preperation for her return to racing this Saturday March 13th. Steve Asmussen commented that he was very happy with the work.
Rachel Alexandra schooled in the paddock earlier this week. She was very quiet and was in terrific form. She did show off a little leaving the paddock breaking into a slow diva-like jog inbetween her groom and assistant trainer Scott Blasi as they walked back to the barn. We expect her to school in the paddock again on Friday.
