She sure is. I loved her coloring.

Apparently this is his main ride. He only switched to Mine that Bird when Rachel Alexandra was pulled from the derby.

I have to admit I thought his win in the Derby was one of those Derby upsets that often arise from having too many horses on the track, but his showing in the Preakness makes him appear to be a very strong finisher, and one of the better horses this year. That horse has legs or lungs or perhaps heart. He finishes with so much apparently left in him.

Yep...a couple more strides of length in the race, and I think he would have won. If he hadn't had to go SO WAY outside this time, I think he would have pulled off a double. Then of course the Triple Crown would be all the buzz. Is there a Triple Crown for jockeys? :)
