Life At Ten, working for the first time since she was eased to the wire in the Breeders' Cup Ladies; Classic, breezed an easy three furlongs in 38.50 seconds for trainer Todd Pletcher on Sunday at Palm Meadows.

“She came back to us here around Christmas time,” said Pletcher. “After what happened in the Breeders’ Cup, the owners decided they’d like to try her again this year. Right now, I really have no plans for her."

Pletcher did say it was doubtful Life At Ten would be pointed to the Gradse 3, $150,000 Rampart at Gulfstream Park on April 2.

"I’m not sure if she’ll be ready in time to make a race like the Rampart going a mile and one eighth at the end of this meet," he saisd. "We’ll probably look at races like the Ogden Phipps and Delaware Handicap, the same kind of schedule as last year, and probably avoid running her at Saratoga, which she just doesn’t seem to like.”
