Clockers corner 4/2-4/8 (Friday)
Weekend feedback will be posted Monday.
Macho Again breezed a good six furlongs in 1:13.80 with jockey Robby Albarado up. Dallas told Robby to go in 1:14 to which Robby said, "I guess I'm fired. I missed the time by a fifth of a second." Dallas was pleased with the breeze. Macho Again was not blowing too hard after the breeze. He did take a couple good hits at the water bucket. Dallas has scheduled three more breezes for Macho Again. That should set us up for the $150,000 Alysheba Stakes(G3) on April 30th at Churchill Downs. Click here for video of this morning's breeze.
Rereadthefootnotes breezed a strong five furlongs in 1:00.67 at Belmont. The work was 2nd fastest of 27 at the distance. Mike Hushion wanted to get a stiff work into Reread that would tire him out a little bit so that we make sure he has as strong a foundation as possible to go seven furlongs. Mike said the work did exactly what he wanted, and Rereadthefootnotes cooled out well after the breeze. We are on target for the $60,000 Billy Redcoat Stakes on April 21st at Aqueduct.
