Rachel Rests


Somehow, she looks pensive. Those with an overactive imagination might think she was pondering her future, perhaps. Alexander the Great, it was said, sat down and wept when there were no more worlds to conquer. But Rachel Alexandra the Great has the world at her feet! Along the bottom of the photo you can make out the pink carnations that adorned her Woodward winner's blanket. And check out nyra.com for a great fisheye photo of the finish of the Woodward Stakes. The only thing that's missing is that incredible wall of noise from the grandstand, which was literally shaking from start to finish -- and beyond.

  1. Hello Saratoga Insider!
    Rachel is so beautiful and powerful.
    She has to be Rufian, reincarnated. Unbelievable!
    Very nice photos you have on your blog and the same goes for the Belmont Park Insider blog, which we just visited and left a comment on.
    As we said in our comment on your Belmont blog, we just started a horse racing handicapping blog, with a morning line favorite report, exclusively for NYRA.
    Every racing day, we post the Morning Line Favorite Report at Aqueduct, Belmont and Saratoga.
    We don't charge anything. It's all free!
    We've also been playing NYRA for over 30 years now. We live 10 minutes away from Belmont Park.
    Please come and visit us. Leave your comment with us.
