Breaking News: Rachel Alexandra Wins the Preakness Stakes

Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness Stakes over Mine that Bird and Musket Man to become only the fifth filly to win and the first in 85 years.

The filly was near the front from the start, whereas Mine that Bird had to charge from last place on his way to a second place finish.

Calvin Borel is the first jockey to win the first two legs of the Triple Crown on two different horses. He was much more subdued after the victory because he felt as if she was always going to win the race. He said, after the race, that she struggled with the surface, but she was still able to get the victory.“She’s the greatest horse I’ve ever been on in my life,” said Borel.
