Mine That Bird and Rachel Alexandra

Hopefully on June 6, Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird and Preakness winner Rachel Alexandra will get to square off in the Belmont.

Rachel Alexandra is a great filly and worthy of taking on the boys in elite races. Mine That Bird proved his win in the Derby was no fluke by nearly rallying to win the Preakness.

Mine That Bird could easily win the Belmont or finish in the top 3 and then go on to run in several other big races. Rachel Alexandra has not made a decision to run in the Preakness just yet, but hopefully she will and make the Belmont a big time event.

But don't count out other horses in the Belmont. The Belmont has seen some other horses fare well in the race other than the Preakness and Kentucky Derby winners.
