Rachel Alexandra arrives at Monmouth


OCEANPORT, N.J. Rachel Alexandra, the 4-5 favorite to beat the colts in the $1.25 million Haskell Invitational, arrived at Monmouth Park shortly before 9 a.m. on Friday.

The filly shipped down from Steve Asmussen's barn at Saratoga, accompanied in the van by a pony.

"Everything went fine," said assistant Scott Blasi, who arrived about a half-hour before Rachel Alexandra. "She didn't turn a hair."

Rachel Alexandra is residing in Sharon Huston's barn as she awaits the Haskell on Sunday. She is scheduled to paddock school with the fillies and mares before Friday's sixth race.
