Filly being prepped for Classic



Havre de Grace worked out at Keeneland on Monday in preparation for the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Churchill Downs, with jockey Gabriel Saez guiding the 4- year- old filly over five furlongs in 58:60 seconds.

Havre de Grace is expected to run against the boys on Nov. 5 in a bid to become the second female to win the Classic, following Zenyatta in 2009. However, owner Rick Porter of Fox Hill Farm has said she will be cross-entered in the Ladies’ Classic.

“It was good, what we needed,” trainer Larry Jones said. “We’re ready; I would have liked to have run last Saturday. She couldn’t get any better.” (AP)
