Being stall bound will constipate them. I wouldn't give her anymore to eat if she isn't pooping. Don't know anything about racing plates but I am assuming grass is slippery. Do you have a paddock or arena you can turn her out in?
I would say a minimum of 2 hours a day for turn out. Hand walking and lunging would be my next option
