Rachel Alexandra spurs line of wines

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - Rachel Alexandra is about to get her
own line of wines.
The co-owners of Kendall-Jackson Winery announced Tuesday that a limited edition of wines honoring their super 3-year-old filly will
be ready for the holiday season.
Rachel Alexandra won the Haskell Invitational on Sunday, beating
Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird by six lengths for her eighth
victory in a row. She also won the Preakness Stakes in May.
The winery says fewer than 300 cases of the wines will be
produced and each bottle will have Rachel's image.
Jess Jackson and wife Barbara Banke are co-owners of the winery.
Jackson purchased Rachel Alexandra in May after the filly won the
Kentucky Oaks by 20¼ lengths.
