Rachel Alexandra, the 2009 Horse of the Year, and her newborn colt have been taken to an equine facility for pain management related to the birth, according to a spokesman.

Spokeswoman Caroline Shaw said in an e-mail Jan. 27 that Rachel Alexandra and the colt are expected to return to Stonestreet Farm in a couple of days, barring unforeseen issues.

They were taken to Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington "as a precautionary measure,'' the e-mail said.

The 6-year-old Rachel Alexandra is owned by Barbara Banke, who is also majority owner of Curlin  , the 2007 and 2008 Horse of the Year and sire of the foal born Jan. 22.
