Rachel Alexandra has a colt
Rachel Alexandra, 2009 Horse of the Year, gave birth Jan. 22 to a 125-pound colt by two-time Horse of the Year Curlin .
The bay colt was born at 2:40 p.m. EST on Stonestreet Farm near Lexington, Ky. He took his first steps 90 minutes later. Emblazoned with a white star, the alert colt bears a striking resemblance to his mother. Stonestreet Farm manager Gary Megibben reported that all was well with both mare and foal.
She is going to be bred back to Bernadini.
I agree 10000000000% with Allison!
Here is the link to Stonestreet stables. They have a photo of Rachel and her new baby boy. I did not want to post a photo from their website on the forum.
He is cute as a bug.

LOL I love the second picture. "Mom give me a kiss." "No."
How cute! So glad to hear that this pregnancy went well. What will his name be?!
This little boy has alot to live up to!
Just out of curiosity, because I have no breeding experience, is it common for mares to be haltered during foaling? She has the halter on in all the soon-after pix I saw today.
Just seems like lots could go wrong with legs- the mare or foal- getting stuck??
Yeay! What a cute boy :)
I've seen many pictures, over the years, of TB farm scenes, with halters on both at pasture & in stall; I've never understood it.
