Ummmm.............. Did We Just See That?

I might be having trouble with my television. I think I saw a filly, hung out in speedy splits, in the slop, against a Triple Crown race winner and several other top colts, destroy them like they were 5 claimers at Mountaineer.

Did I just see that? It can't be.

I am calling my cable provider.

What cable system do you have...on satellite I think I saw what you're describing but I'm awaiting further confirmation...like Jack Buck said when KIRK GIBSON hit that improbable home run in game 1 of the '88 World Series, "I DON'T BELIEVE WHAT I JUST SAW! I DON'T BELIEVE WHAT I JUST SAW!!!"

She was amazing. I don't follow the runners at all (other than a bet in the triple crown races), but she seems to be a freak of nature. Would you know if she has ever been tested for hormone levels? I am not suggesting anything sinister, but in the standardbred world we have had a couple of horses that look like fillies test genetically as male.

Not to take anything away from Rachel Alexandra, either way she destroys her competition.

Hmmm, seems that my cable provider had the same "glitch"....but yes, I saw that too!! Zenyatta, ("The Black Tornado"), is the only other horse that I can think of in today's day of racing, that could give Alexandra The Great a run for her money...either that or throw a gazelle in the gate next to her! :)
