    Girls Rule! At Least, In Horse Racing!

    History made at the Preakness today.

    It was an historic day in more ways than one, today at the Preakness!

    BALTIMORE(AP)—Girls rule!
    The best 3-year-old in the land just happens to be a filly named Rachel Alexandra.
    Jockey Calvin Borel all but guaranteed victory in the Preakness Stakes and, boy, did she deliver, becoming the first filly in 85 years to win the second leg of the Triple Crown.
    A rangy bay who is as big as most of the horses she beat, Rachel Alexandra shot to the front and took a sizable lead before Mine That Bird tested her in the stretch. The 9-5 favorite beat him by a length in her first race against the boys.
    Saturday’s win also validated Borel’s decision to climb off Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird and stay on as her regular rider.

    Re: Girls Rule! At Least, In Horse Racing!

    My busy Saturdays kept me away from the television, and so this year I missed the "long shot" winner of the Kentucky Derby, and the filly winning the Preakness. I usually pick a horse in these races and watch all the pre race coverage, and the race as well. I'm sorry I missed it.

    Thanks for the update Barry.
