Shackleford Works and His Sister WINS!!!!

Shackleford worked 5/8ths at Belmont yesterday for his last big work before next Saturday's mile and a half Test of Champions.He was clocked in 1:00.37.
It was a relaxed, energetic move with a nice gallop out. He looks strong, healthy and happy. According to Romans, if he comes out of the work fine, he is a "go".

And a BIG THANK YOU!!!  to the Preakness winner's big (1/2) sister, Afleeting Lady ( Afleet Alex x Oatsee) who broke her maiden in the 8th race yesterday at Churchill paying $41.80!


  1. Shackleford is a much more physically impressive specimen than I first realized. I hope he does really good in the Belmont and lasts the distance...I'm not sure who I'm choosing to win yet, it's a really competitive field coming up.

  2. Hi Brian,
    I think it's going to be a good race.
    BTW, I am enjoying your analysis of all the fillies and mares. Keep up the good work! And thanks for stopping by.

  3. Thanks Susan, it's been fun so far, and such a strong year for the fillies overall I think.
