LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Preakness-winning filly Rachel Alexandra has put in a final workout before her next start in Saturday's Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park.

Rachel Alexandra worked a half mile in 49.8 seconds at Churchill Downs on Monday morning, and trainer Steve Asmussen said the 3-year-old filly went "beautiful" and looked "happy." She galloped out five furlongs in 1:03.40.

Rachel Alexandra won the Kentucky Oaks by 20 1/4 lengths on May 1, and her Preakness win against the boys gave her a six-race winning streak. The Mother Goose for 3-year-olds fillies will be her first start since the Preakness.
