Rachel Alexandra back at farm



LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A spokeswoman for Stonestreet Farm says Rachel Alexandra, the 2009 Horse of the Year, and her newborn colt have returned to their home.

The two had been taken Friday to Rood and Riddle Equine Clinic in Lexington as a precautionary measure for pain management related to the birth.

Spokeswoman Caroline Shaw said in an email that the two were returned to the farm Monday.

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.
