Rachel romps in Mother Goose

NEW YORK (AP) - Rachel Alexandra may need to run against the
boys just to find some competition.
The Preakness winner romped to a 19¼-length victory in the
$300,000 Mother Goose on Saturday, splitting Flashing and Malibu
Prayer on the far turn at Belmont Park and pulling away down the
long front stretch to win in a stakes-record 1:46.33.
The superstar filly was back on the track for the first time
since knocking off the boys at Pimlico.
She went off as the overwhelming 1-9 favorite in a field of
3-year-old fillies reduced to three by two late scratches. With
jockey Calvin Borel aboard, Rachel Alexandra won her seventh
straight race.
Rachel Alexandra paid $2.10, with no place or show wagering due
to the short field. Malibu Prayer finished second and Flashing was
third.
