Saratoga: Rachel cool, Life at Ten hot

Email

Rachel Alexandra wins the battle of the Saratoga paddock by open lengths. She did not turn a hair in a crowded, hot, chaotic scene, stepping calmly around the ring once saddled. Life at Ten, on the other hand, was agitated and sweaty, seeming to dislike the milling onlookers. There's still a race to be run, but as to the lead-up: Advantage Rachel Alexandra.
