Rachel Alexandra on the Hot List
Super Filly Rachel Alexandra made the "Who's Hot, Who's Not" feature in this weeks Sports Illustrated (August 10th, 2009 edition).
Although we all loved the Mine That Bird story, it is Rachel that has that true "star" quality, you can't explain it, but you know it when you see it. She's hot enough to make the mainstream media and Sports Illustrated took notice. She's got that something special that extends to both the die hard fans and the casual fans. Compare her star quality and name recognition to Zenyatta.
Zenyatta has a perfect racing record of 11 wins in 11 starts, and had a head start on the racetrack (debuting 11/23/08) , but ask most casual fans who Zenyatta is and you will get a puzzled look in response.
