Forever Together, winner of the 2008 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf (gr. IT), is back in the race in which she finished third last year.
The 6-year-old daughter of Belong to Me --Constant Companion, by Relaunch, trained by Jonathan Sheppard for Augustin Stable drilled five furlongs on turf in 1:01 at Churchill Downs Nov. 1 in preparation for the Nov. 5 race sponsored by Emirates Airline.
"It looked like she went well," said the mare’s Hall of Fame trainer.
Forever Together, who has won or placed in 21 of 25 starts en route to earning $2.9 million and won the 2008 Eclipse Award as the nation's leading turf female, will be ridden by mid-Atlantic-based jockey Rosie Napravnik.
Forever Together is winless in her last eight starts since taking the Diana (gr. IT) at Saratoga in 2009.
