Rachel Alexandra breezes


Rachel Alexandra put in her first workout since arriving at Saratoga last week, breezing five furlongs in 1:01.30 over the Oklahoma training track Monday. Rachel Alexandra is preparing for a start in the $400,000 Lady's Secret Stakes at Monmouth Park on July 24.

According to Saratoga clockers, Rachel Alexander went her first eighth-mile in 13.20 seconds, and three furlongs in 36.85 seconds, meaning she got her last quarter in 24.45 seconds. She galloped out six furlongs in 1:14.20.

It was Rachel Alexandra's third workout since she won the Grade 2 Fleur de Lis at Churchill Downs on June 12. That followed second-place finishes to Zardana in the New Orleans Ladies at Fair Grounds and to Unrivaled Belle in the La Troienne at Churchill Downs.
