Rachel Alexandra to Mother Goose

Rachel Alexandra to Mother Goose
NEW YORK - Rachel Alexandra, will race in the 1 1/8 -mile Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park, Saturday, June 27.  She is expected to arrive at Belmont Park on Tuesday, June 23. The race will mark the first competition for the super filly since defeating the colts in the Preakness Stakes.  Her last race against fillies was her 20-length romp at the Kentucky Oaks last month.

“Rachel is rested, healthy and ready to run,” said co-owner Jess Jackson. “On Monday, she turned in a very strong six furlong work galloping out seven furlongs around the clubhouse turn in 1:24.80.”

Rachel Alexandra has won eight of 11 career starts. In addition to the Preakness and Kentucky Oaks wins, Rachel Alexandra’s major victories include the Golden Rod Stakes (2008), Martha Washington Stakes (2009), Fair Grounds Oaks (2009), and Fantasy Stakes (2009).

Foaled in 2006, Rachel Alexandra is out of Lotta Kim, a daughter of Claiborne Farm's multiple stakes winner, Roar. Rachel Alexandra was sired by Medaglia d'Oro, a multiple Grade I winner who retired with career earnings in excess of $5.7 million.
