Rachel Alexandra and Her Foal

Rachel Alexandra and her first foal, a Curlin colt born on Jan. 22, 2012, live on Stonestreet Farm.

They went out in their paddock on a beautiful and sunny day in Lexington, Ky.

The foal took his lead from Rachel Alexandra, running some, resting some and repeating the routine. The foal is growing fast and now weighs 175 pounds. Friendly and inquisitive, the foal goes right up to visitors and likes having his forehead rubbed.

“Rachel is doing great,” said farm manager Garry Megibben, “and the foal is full of himself. He’s been a great addition.”
Hot Dixie Chick (Rachel’s paddock buddy) had her first foal on Feb. 7 when she delivered a Curlin colt. In about a week’s time, Rachel Alexandra and Hot Dixie Chick will once again share a paddock with the addition of their Curlin foals.
