'Rachel' works out; next race might be Mother Goose

Sports Digest

Preakness winner Rachel Alexandra has had another workout at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., but the filly's next race is not yet set. Rachel Alexandra worked six furlongs in 1 minute, 13.80 seconds over a fast track with exercise rider Dominic Terry aboard. Last week, the 3-year-old filly went four furlongs in her first workout since winning the Preakness on May 16. Trainer Steve Asmussen says the filly rode beautifully and "seems very happy." Co-owner Jess Jackson has mentioned the Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont on June 27 as the next possible start.
