Did You See Rachel?

It wasn't on t.v. but Sunday we managed to watch the Haskell live on the Monmouth Park website.

Now it's on ESPN and you can see for yourself how the filly Rachel Alexandra made some of the best of this year's three-year-old colts look pretty easy to beat. And she almost broke the track record on a slow track, too. That's not the track record for fillies, that's the track record, period.

Notice who is not all muddy in this picture. That's because no one was ever in front of her, all day long.

  1. Wow, that's amazing. And she is the only clean one in all that mud!
