Echo Zuluthe 2021 champion 2-year-old female, was among the graded-stakes winners on the work tab Monday morning, breezing four furlongs at Fair Grounds.

Undefeated in four starts, Steve Asmussen’s filly has yet to race this year. She is best priced at 40-1 in Las Vegas future odds for the Kentucky Derby, but David Fiske, manager of co-owner Winchell Thoroughbreds, said recently that Echo Zulu’s next start and future path are uncertain.
