RACHEL ALEXANDRA - 2009 Haskell Invitational Stakes

She will go down in history as one of the great ones! This filly beat the colts yet again, easily, on a sloppy track...and still just missed getting a track record. Notice jockey Calvin Borel's cute little twirling of the crop as she stormed passed the boys at the top of the stretch, and then it seemed he didn't even tap her, just waved the crop by her head to keep her running straight. For whoever may not know, she beat Mine That Bird, the Derby winner, in the Preakness, and in this race, she beat Summer Bird, the Belmont winner...so we will always wonder if she could've won the Triple Crown.
