The last time she was seen racing at Churchill Downs, she was known as Rachel Alexandra
. Now, to horse racing fans everywhere, she is just Rachel.
Starting for the first time in Louisville since her record-setting
Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) a year ago, Rachel Alexandra headlines a field
of six in the $400,000 La Troienne Stakes
(gr. III). An undercard race on Oaks Day April 30, the 1 1/16–mile La
Troienne is one of five graded stakes on the Churchill program.
