American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly (2009)

Rachel Alexandra (foaled January 29, 2006 in Kentucky) is a retired American Thoroughbred filly racehorse and the 2009 Horse of the Year. She is renowned as the May 16, 2009 Preakness Stakes winner, the second jewel of the Triple Crown, the first filly to win the race in 85 years (since Nellie Morse, 1924). She was the impressive winner of races in six states (KY, LA, AR, MD, NY, NJ), on 8 different tracks, against fillies and Grade 1 colts and older horses, achieving a long string of consecutive wins including numerous Grade 1 stakes. Often considered alongside Ruffian as the greatest 3-year old filly in thoroughbred racing history, Rachel Alexandra neared or broke multiple stakes records, track records, and winning margin records throughout her career. On September 28, 2010, owner Jess Jackson announced Rachel Alexandra would be retired. She was bred to 2007/2008 Horse of the Year, Curlin and is in foal with a colt anticipated for 2012.
