The second foal out of 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra was born Feb. 12 at Stonestreet Farms near Lexington, Stonestreet representatives confirmed that afternoon.
Rachel Alexandra, who beat the boys in the 2009 BlackBerry Preakness Stakes (gr. I) and the Woodward Stakes (gr. I) after taking the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) earlier in her phenomenal 3-year-old season, delivered a daughter of top Darley sire Bernardini at 2:30 a.m. EST.
Weighing in at 140 pounds, the bay filly is the largest foal born at Stonestreet so far this year.
