Rachel Alexandra - a photographic look at the amazing career of the 2009 Horse of the Year


With the announcement of the 2010 Horse of the Year just around the corner, here's a photographic look back at one of history's greatest race fillies, Rachel Alexandra.  I doubt I'll ever see another filly win the Preakness, Haskell and Woodward. 

The photos, taken by Michael Amoruso, Alysse Jacobs, Tom Keyser, Justin N. Lane, Barbara Livingston and Tod Marks are in no particular order - but I'll bet many Rachel fans will recognize just when many were taken!  Congratulations - and thanks - again to all the connections of the 2009 Horse of the Year...
