A Re-Newed Rachel ?

Rachel Alexandra worked a sparkling 5/8ths at Churchill this morning, galloping out 3/4's in 1:12.80 and 7/8ths in 1.26. Shawn Bridgmohan was aboard for the work. This picture , (Reed Palmer, Churchill Downs) shows a much stronger, straighter, happier and enthusiastic Rachel. Maybe, just maybe she is back. There are no firm plans yet, and according to her handlers, "all options are still open" No one knows for sure what that means from this group, but I guess we will just have to wait and see.


  1. And no more excuses from J.J. prior to her races either. I hope she comes back and her and the Queen get to meet on the track.

  2. Hi Gayle,
    Let's keep our fingers crossed. That would be the Ultimate Throwdown / Showdown.

    Thanks for stopping by!
