Spain, who won the 2000 edition of the Breeders' Cup Distaff (gr. I) and came within a head of repeating that feat this year, worked a sharp :59 4/5 over five furlongs in her final preparation for Thursday's $250,000-added Falls City Handicap (gr. III) at Churchill Downs.

Caressing to Return to Training

Caressing, the Eclipse Award-winning juvenile filly in 2000, will go back into training by the end of March, according to trainer David Vance. Winner of last year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (g. I), Caressing was scheduled to make her 2001 debut in the Honeybee (g. III) at Oaklawn Park March 10. However, she came down with a fever and a bad blood count, and went off her feed the week before the race.
