If you can afford it, find a good chiropractor. Depending on how long your girl was racing, she might do well from having one or two adjustments.
Also, don't be afraid to get a little pushy....most likely, she's used to getting to do what she wants as long as she runs well, so she's going to think the same applies now!
Find out as much as you can about her injury history. This will help you a lot later when you're deciding what to do with her discipline wise, and it will also help your vet. Just because she's sound now doesn't mean she's been injury free.
I agree with SB, go slow, at least until you figure out how fast she learns, every horse is different and if you start pounding something in to her brain after she's already learned it, she might start acting out out of boredom.
