Rachel Alexandra will wear new equipment Saturday: Fig-8

  1. One more reason for an “excuse” should something go wrong in her debut.

    Similarly, I understand Lookin’ at Lucky is scheduled to go into The Rebel with “blinkers on”.

    That after a terrifically successful two year old campaign
    without such an equipment. Why risk a poor performance
    by making unnecessary equipment changes when there is little time to lose? I’m playing against the latter. 😉

  2. Alexis Barba put blinkers on multiple G1-placed maiden Make Music for Me Saturday and he stayed closer to the pace and ran much sharper; maybe Bob feels they’ll keep Lookin at Lucky closer.

    As for Rachel, the F8 will help her breathe better.
