Rachel Alexandra Wins 134th Preakness

May 16, 2009

preakness-134

Rachel Alexandra didn’t just run with the big boys, she ran past them becoming the first filly to win the Preakness since 1924.  Rachel Alexandra was jockeyed by Calvin Borel, who won the Kentucky Derby with Mine That Bird.  Mine That Bird finished in second followed by Musket Man.  The winning time was 1:55.08.

    Just great that she won, although a Triple Crown attempt would have been cool too.

    I agree, it is not the same but it would make an interesting story.
    Beeze–Mine That Bird showed she is legit.
