Reader RG is ready to rush Rachel Alexandra off to the breeding shed....already! Breed Rachel with Ravens Pass or Henrythenavigator? But it seems to me that Rachel is destined for a pre-arranged permanent courtship with Curlin, who of course ran behind those two in the Classic, and who is currently standing at Lane's End for $75,000. Ravens Pass is standing at Darley Ireland for €40,000, or about $54,000; while Henrythenavigator is here in the US at Ashford, for $65,000.
Another entry, along with Jess Jackson's plans to breed Superhorse, in the 'dream on' category, is Dogwood's purchase, for $485,000, of Mine That Bird's
full half brother at the Timonium sale.
Campbell said the colt will be shipped to Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and will train under Todd Pletcher.Right, and GM could be reopening plants, Guantanamo could be closed, and there could be slots at Aqueduct!
If all goes well, he could be a candidate for Triple Crown races in 2010. [Augusta Chronicle]
