CD: Rachel, easily


To the delight of the fans everywhere who made her the 1-10 fave, '09 HOY Rachel Alexandra won the G2 Fleur de Lis without ever feeling the sting of C.Borel's whip, drawing off to win by 10 1/2 lengths over Distinctive Dixie, with Jessica Is Back third.

Rachel now is 1 for 3 in 2010 after finishing 1 1/8 miles in 1:48.78 over a fast track. She paid $2.20 to win and $2.10 to place, with no show wagering. Of $444,034 in the place pool, $402,402 was bet on Rachel.
