Havre de Grace at Keeneland

This morning, Fox Hill Farms’ Horse of the Year candidate Havre de Grace breezed at Keeneland in preparation for the Breeders’ Cup Classic against the colts at Churchill Downs on Saturday, November 6th.

It was my first time seeing the four-year-old filly, and I was impressed by her professional attitude and the ease and fluidity of her long stride. She covered five furlongs in :58 3/5, the second fastest of 14 horses to work the distance on the day.

Cindy Jones, wife of trainer Larry, leads Havre de Grace on to the track.

Galloping around the turn well in hand before beginning her timed work.

The second time around, breezing, under jockey Gabriel Saez.

She really stretches out.

  1. Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos! She looks to be in great shape - go, Gracie!

  2. Zowie!! Those are cool.

    She does seem confident and composed. Just what she needs to be for the big day.

    I'm looking forward to the good effort.
