Elite Alex Works Toward Louisiana Derby


After scratching from the Grade II Rebel Stakes Saturday, Elite Alex worked today at Oaklawn Park with jockey Calvin Borel aboard. Elite Alex drew post 12 in the 13-horse Louisiana Derby, which is run at 1 1/8th mile.

Third in the Southwest in his last race, the son of Afleet Alex clocked five furlongs in 1:00.80 in company with Cash McCool, who was caught going the same distance in 1:02.00.

“Nothing unusual. He worked OK,” said trainer Tim Ritchey. “It was just what we would normally do, and he galloped out strong.”
