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.
