Congrats to Rachel Alexandra!
When Street Sense ran, I screamed at the TV. When Giacomo ran, I screamed at the TV. A few weeks ago with Mine that Bird, I screamed at the TV for the brief few moments it was clear he was going to win.

I am now completely hoarse after Rachel Alexandra in the Oaks and the Preakness. I really hope to see Mine that Bird and Rachel Alexandra race again. At the very end there, it was pretty awesome.

All I can say is, way to run like a girl!

I totally want a match race between them. I totally thought Mine That Bird had her!

If he hadn't had to take cthe outside, he would have passed her easily, He's got speed!

If they both run the Belmont, my money's on Mine That Bird; he's a distance runner, would have probably had Rachel Alexandra in a few more strides.

HOWEVER - Rachel Alexandra is an amazing filly. Did you see the Kentucky Oaks race?

OMG, she makes me tear everytime I watch. I am looking for a photo of her in the winner's circle to put on my computer. Any suggestions??
Thanks bunches!

Mine That Bird's jockey from the Kentucky Derby...makes me angry. I don't remember his name, but he should've stuck with Bird. =/ That's my two cents.

I agree with you on that.
