Havre de Grace Breezes in :59 Sunday
NEW ORLEANS (Sunday, February 26, 2012) – Fox Hill Farms’ reigning Horse of the Year Havre de Grace breezed a bullet five furlongs in 59 flat Sunday morning at Fair Grounds with regular exercise rider Jen Brasser in the irons.
Once again stepping on the track as the first work horse of the morning, Havre de Grace was clocked with splits of 11.80, 23.80, 35.60 and 47.40 before getting the five-eighths in 59 and then galloped out the three-quarter mile distance in 1:13.60. Her five-furlong work was accomplished in a final time four-fifths of a second faster than her previous move at that distance six days earlier.
