Stargroves Tangie Posted May 17, 2009 Share Posted May 17, 2009 What a great performance by Rachel Alexandra! I was a little concerned when she reached the half in 46 & change, thought it was a little too fast for a 1 & 3/16 mile race, but she held on. Borel said after the race that "Rachel" wasn't handling the track very well, so if that's true she definitely showed everyone what a real champion she is. "Mine" finished very well with another great closing effort. Even though he didn't win, he has nothing to be ashamed about- he proved he belongs with the top 3 year olds. Pimlico is not kind to deep closers, and yet he was only a length behind "Rachel". Wouldn't be surprised if he reversed that in the Belmont.
