How Intriguing!

Rachel Alexandra delivered early! On Jan. 22, Rachel Alexandra gave birth to a 125-pound colt by two-time Horse of the Curlin. With a white star, the colt is reported to have a striking resemblance to his mother. Farm manager Gary Megibben reported that the mare and foal are doing well.

I was recently sent out on assignment to capture photos of Rachel Alexandra and Zenyatta on the farm for a feature in the special issue, The Blood-Horse's 25 Most Intriguing Horses & People of 2011.  The winners have been announced and the magazine is now available for only $7.95 plus free shipping. You can order your copy today at

With that being said, I'd like to share a few of the photos I captured of these beautiful mares.

I can't share all of the photos that were taken so to see which photos were selected for the magazine and to read the magnificent features on Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra by Lenny Shulman and Deirdre Biles, be sure to order your copy of  The Blood-Horse's 25 Most Intriguing Horses & People of 2011 today. Plus, I really think you will like the winners of each category which were selected by fans on

All of the photos below are available for purchase on The Blood-Horse Photo Store.

Let me know what you guys think and who you'd like to see featured next on

OMG Rachel Alexandra looks so amazing. I love her more than anything! Her colt is so beautiful. She is the greatest specimen in my eyes. Zenyatta looks great too. I wish all the best to these wonderful mares.

I am so excited for RA's first foal, can't wait to see photos of him. Birth announced on my b-day, but he was born yesterday.

Aww, these ladies are gorgeous! Congrats to Rachel on the baby's arrival! New video on Rachel's facebook of mom and baby.  Can't wait for Zenyatta's baby.  These horses are both so great!

Yay!  They both look wonderful.  I am so happy that Rachel Alexandra and foal are doing so well and I'm hoping for the same for Zenyatta!
