Persistently - 2010 Personal Ensign (G1) [02:25]
Persistently waited patiently behind a speed duel and made an inexorable rally in the stretch to upset Rachel Alexandra by a length on Sunday at Saratoga Race Course in the 63rd running of the Grade 1, $300000 Personal Ensign for fillies and mares. Reigning Horse of the Year and odds-on favorite Rachel Alexandra, making her first start at the Spa since her victory in last year's Grade 1 Woodward, was away alertly but was challenged immediately by second choice Life At Ten. With Rachel Alexandra racing along the inside and Life At Ten glued to her flank, the two favorites raced in tandem as they passed the grandstand for the first time, with Rachel Alexandra floating her rival several paths wide as they entered the first turn. As the battle continued up front, Persistently settled outside in fourth, 14 ½ lengths behind as the pacesetters dictated fractions of 47.73 for the half-mile and 1:12.02 for six furlongs. Rachel Alexandra put away Life At Ten at the quarter pole, but Persistently had already begun to whittle away at the deficit. Set down for the drive, Rachel Alexandra offered temporary resistance to Persistently's bid before the long shot collared the favorite in the final 30 yards. "She had a very good trip all the way behind the leaders," said winning jockey Alan Garcia. "At the three-eighths pole, I knew I had to move, and she did it. I knew she was doing this well."

Rachel works 6f at Spa August 9, 2010 [02:32]
With jockey Shaun Bridgmohan in the irons, reigning Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra continued preparations for the Grade 1, $300000 Personal Ensign at Saratoga Race Course, breezing a strong six furlongs in 1:12.96 shortly after 6 am Monday morning over the Oklahoma training track. "I thought it was very good," said trainer Steve Asmussen of the move, the second of four scheduled for Rachel leading up to the 1 ¼-mile Personal Ensign on August 29. "Shaun did a great job with her. She was very strong to the pole, broke off at the three-quarters. Her first eighth of a mile was excellent, to get her to settle down. She came home the last quarter in :23 and change, which is what we were looking at, and galloped out strong." The Personal Ensign will be Rachel Alexandra's first start at 1 ¼ miles, and also her first start in a Grade 1 race this year. With a record of 2-2-0 from four starts as a 4-year-old, the Stonestreet Stables color-bearer finished second in the New Orleans Ladies and the Grade 2 La Troienne, and won her last two starts, the Grade 2 Fleur de Lis and the Lady's Secret.
