Codas Caleta the
Rachel Alexandra the Thoroughbred
What do I love most about Rachel Alexandra? I don't know what to pick first. I guess I'll start with the fact we both have the same middle name "Alexandra". I pick my racehorses based on their names, and Rachel Alexandra was always my pick for any race she was in. Above that silly little reason, she beat all the boys in the 2009 Preakness. I fully believe had she ran in the Derby and Belmont, we may have had our first triple crown winner since Affirmed. Miss Rachel has a very distinctive face marking, it almost looks like an upside down exclamation point.
