Coffeepot Stables' Farrell (Malibu Moon), who figures to dispute favoritism for the GI Kentucky Oaks, drilled five furlongs in 1:00.20 Saturday morning over the Churchill Downs main track. It was her first workout since running her current winning streak to four with a 3 1/4-length success in the GII TwinSpires.com Fair Grounds Oaks Apr. 1.

The homebred, trained by Wayne Catalano, was clocked in fractions of :13, :25, :36 and :48.40 before galloping out an extra eighth of a mile in 1:14.40.

The daughter of Rebridled Dreams (Unbridled's Song), a half-sister to former TDN Rising Star and multiple Grade I winner Carpe Diem (Giant's Causeway), has won five of her seven career trips to the post, including a six-length romp over recent GI Central Bank Ashland S. runner-up Daddys Lil Darling (Scat Daddy) in the GII Golden Rod S. at Churchill last November. Farrell won the Silverbulletday S. and GII Rachel Alexandra S. prior to her Fair Grounds Oaks tally.
