Rachel Alexandra done for the year

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - Star filly Rachel Alexandra is
finished racing for the year.

Owner Jess Jackson announced the decision Friday, adding that
the 3-year-old sensation will return to the races in 2010.

Earlier, Jackson had said Rachel Alexandra would not run in the
Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 7 at Santa Anita because he did not
like to run his horses on a synthetic surface.

Rachel Alexandra completes the year with an 8-for-8 record,
including wins against boys in the Preakness Stakes, the Haskell
Invitational and the Woodward Stakes against older horses.

The chestnut filly is a leading contender for Horse of the Year.
Rachel Alexandra will spend the rest of the year at Churchill
Downs.
