Owner Jess Jackson included the Obeah Stakes with three other possibilities for the 4-year-old daughter of Medaglia d'Oro. The Obeah Stakes is the local prep for the 11/4-mile, $750,000 Grade II Delaware Handicap on July 17.
In two starts this year, the Kentucky-bred has finished second both times. In her most recent outing, she finished second beaten a head in the mile and a sixteenth $400,000 La Troienne at Churchill Downs on April 30.
"Rachel Alexandra's condition continues to improve. We were impressed with Rachel's Memorial Day work breezing six furlongs 1:11.20 and galloping out a mile in 1:38. Her next work is Monday.
