In one of the most dominant performances in race history, Rachel Alexandra cruised to a 201/4-length victory under a hand ride in the 135th running of the Grade I $500,000 Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs.
“She’s just getting better and better,” winning trainer Hal Wiggins
said. “All of her races this year have been on kind of the easy side,
and it seems like this was just another one like that.”
