Rachel Alexandra, winner of the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) and BlackBerry Preakness Stakes (gr. I), will make her next start in the 1 1/8 -mile Mother Goose Stakes (gr. I) at Belmont Park on June 27. 

According to an announcement from co-owner Jess Jackson June 17, the filly is expected to arrive at Belmont Park on June 23. In her last race against fillies before defeating males in the Preakness, rachel Alexandra romped by 20 lengths in the Kentucky Oaks.

“Rachel is rested, healthy and ready to run,” Jackson said in a statement. “On Monday, she turned in a very strong six furlong work galloping out seven furlongs around the clubhouse turn in 1:24.80.”

The Medaglia d'Oro   filly has won eight of 11 career starts.
