SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – In her final workout for Saturday’s Lady’s Secret at Monmouth Park, Rachel Alexandra breezed a half-mile in 49.60 seconds Monday morning on the Oklahoma training track at Saratoga.

With assistant trainer Scott Blasi alongside on his gray pony, Rachel Alexandra came onto the track beneath Shaun Bridgmohan shortly before 6 a.m. The 2009 Horse of the Year was clearly feeling energized by the relative coolness compared to recent mornings and was a study in controlled aggression as she galloped toward the half-mile pole.
