Preakness Stakes Contender Zetterholm Works at Pimlico


New York-bred Zetterholm shipped from Aqueduct to Pimlico on Saturday and recorded a workout on Sunday morning in advance of Saturday’s Preakness Stakes (G1).

The son of Silver Train paid two visits to the track on Sunday, according to Maryland Jockey Club Publicity. He toured the oval around 6:50 a.m. The second time he went out was at 8:30 a.m. During the second visit, he drilled five furlongs in 1:01.40 for trainer Rick Dutrow. The horse was ridden by exercise rider Mario Madrid. Overseeing the colt was assistant trainer Blake Dutrow, the 20-year-old nephew of the trainer.

“It was all very basic. It was all good,” Blake Dutrow said. “Everything went very well. We just got him out and jogged him so he could see the track and know what he was going to be facing when he came out. He loved it. He went out, came back to the barn and knew he was going to breeze. He came out and did his thing the right way.”

Zetterholm is on a three-race winning streak, all against state-bred company.
