And win she did. There have been 52 fillies in the Preakness since it started in the late 1800's. Only 4 have won........until Saturday. Rachel Alexandra is her name and running is her game. She was the heavy favorite and obviously for good reason. It didn't take her long after the starting gate to take the lead and should to the boys "Scoot over boys, let me show you how it's done!"
It was a thrilling race. Is is just me or is horse racing getting more exciting the past couple of years? The racing world has really suffered for a long time. No triple crown winners since 1978 and there won't be one this year either. I would have loved to have seen this filly in the Derby. WOW! Now that's exciting.
