Rachel Alexandra was the only girl racing in the Preakness Stakes today, but she whipped the boys, becoming the first filly in 85 years (and the fifth in the history of the race) to win. After the race, Calvin Borel, the jockey who rode her, said, “She’s every jock’s dream horse.” Yeah, she is! [Baltimore, MD, 5/16/09]
