Rachel returns home to Stonestreet

Rachel Alexandra is home at Stonestreet today, beginning the next stage of her remarkable recuperation following abdominal surgery in mid-February.

Stonestreet employees decorated her stall with cards from fans as they awaited her arrival; a get-well banner from Fair Grounds Racecourse stretched across the barn, ready to welcome the hard-fighting champion home.

“Having Rachel home is a milestone in her recovery. Our Stonestreet team is so happy to have her home and we are eager to give her all the exceptional care and attention she needs,” said Barbara Banke, “I am deeply grateful to Drs. Woodie, Barr, Reed and the entire Rood & Riddle team for the unparalleled care Rachel has received at their facility. A special thank you as well to Medical Technician Brent Comer for his dedication to her care, and to Alex Riddle for keeping Rachel’s fans updated on her progress.”

Stonestreet’s team and Rood & Riddle medical technicians will join to monitor Rachel around the clock while Dr. Bonnie Barr checks her progress with daily visits to the farm.

So very happy humans are giving Rachel Alexandra her 'due' for so much she has given us.
she's looking out of that stall door like : "let me at that race track"
Great news! She looks marvelous.
Rachel's a fighter if there ever was one! Hoping for a full recovery :)
from a vet's perspective, this recovery is almost miraculous. makes me so happy to see how far vet medicine has come and so proud of RA and her connections and their strength and determination. yay!
Such good news!
Look at her. I am so happy that she's made her way home. Keep fighting like a girl, Rachel.
