Ebben has been doing well,” Margolis said. “He worked :59 and 1 (on Saturday Dec. 30). We’ll work him a half-mile next weekend and get Corey (Lanerie) to ride him.

Trainer Steve Margolis, is expected to enter Ebbed in the G3, $200,000 Lecomte Stakes — a qualifying race for the Kentucky Derby — at the Fair Grounds on Jan. 13
