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.

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.

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??

It certainly could!:-(

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.
