It is official… Rachel Alexandra is in another’s hands. It has been less than a week, and the young lady who set our hearts on fire belongs to another.  But all is well; you’ll see…

“Rachel Alexandra is one of the best horses in racing today,” said Jess Jackson of Stonestreet Stable. “She is fast, strong and durable—the traits we should all be breeding into all future generations of race horses.   Her beauty and athleticism will thrill thousands of fans.”

I think they had to back up a Brinks truck to make this deal. I don’t know how confidential it will remain, but one thing we can count on is that they intend on making little “superhorses” for quite a while.

If she is bred to Curlin, and all goes well, the others may have to sprout wings to catch the offspring. This is the best of times. We have plenty to look forward to for the upcoming years.

Now, back to racing. Jess Jackson didn’t buy her to watch her beat up on the gals forever. I think we will see her kick the boys’ tails.  Just think, if she was urged in any way down the lane, she would have won by 40. I think the next stop is the boys. And if they know what is good for them, they better be ready.
