Rachel Alexandra was very impressive in her workout today.

Too bad she is running in the Oaks rather than the Derby

I was wondering how Mine that Bird looked today and maybe Summer Bird?

apparently Birdstone now has a Kentucky Oaks starter too! Stone Legacy I heard has been entered

I went to Churchill yesterday to watch the works. Rachel gives me chills. Everything just looks so easy for her. She's coming down the stretch with her ears pricked.

Mine that Bird looked good, he worked late, pretty much by his lonesome.

Summer Bird sure is a pretty thing, nice chestnut. He galloped yesterday and then schooled in the paddock - I missed the schooling.

Alisha - I had heard rumblings about Stone Legacy in the Oaks, but I guess it's now official.

Glad to see Stone Legacy running in the Oaks! Im going with Summer Bird all the way in the derby.
