Friend Or Foe: Travers Workout - August 21 [01:25]
Turning in his final breeze for the Travers on Saturday was the New York-bred Friend Or Foe, who covered five furlongs over the main track in 1:00.60, according to the NYRA clockers. Sent out shortly after 6 am, Chester Broman Sr.'s colt was piloted by jockey Rajiv Maragh, who will ride him in the Travers and who guided him to a fourth-place finish in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy here on July 31, Friend Or Foe's first start around two turns. "I told I told Rajiv we were trying to shoot for around a minute," said trainer John Kimmel. "The track was a little bit on the dry side this morning, and I got him in a 1:00.53, out in 1:13 and 4/5. He actually picked up a horse in the middle of the breeze and used him as a target maybe for an eighth of a mile until he passed him. Rajiv said he felt absolutely great underneath him and he came back and was cooled off in a matter of just minutes. It was about as comfortable a breeze as you could want." With the breeze behind him, Friend Or Foe's major preparations for the race are now complete.

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.
