This is what makes racing great

Rachel Alexandra winning the Preakness over a hard charging Mine That Bird is what makes racing so exciting to me as a fan.

You had a awesome filly winning against the boys, a plucky gelding proving the Derby was no fluke and an exciting race. It is stories like this that create a buzz and grab the back pages of the NY Daily News and NY Post and tons of other covers on Papers across the country.

That's great! Even the sports pages of the two major papers here in Pittsburgh had photos & articles about the filly. Horse racing coverage here is usually next to nothing!
