Havre de Grace Up to Five Furlongs in :59 4/5

NEW ORLEANS (Monday, February 20, 2012) – Horse of the Year Havre de Grace continued to progress toward her 2012 debut in March, breezing five furlongs in :59 4/5 on Lundi Gras morning at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots.

The 5-year-old mare, owned by Rick Porter’s Fox Hill Farms, once again posted the first timed move of the morning just after the track opened for training at 6 a.m. and. Working from the five-eighths pole to the finish line with exercise rider Jen Brasser aboard, Fair Grounds clockers recorded splits of :12, :24 1/5, :36 1/5, and :48. Brasser did not ask Havre de Grace for anything after the wire, galloping out six furlongs into the turn in 1:14 3/5.
