Rachel Alexandra has been tested in foal to Darley shuttler Bernardini. The Medaglia d’Oro mare foaled a Curlin colt for Stonestreet Farms owner Barbara Banke on January 22.
Rachel Alexandra was named 2009 USA Horse of the Year after an unbeaten eight-race campaign. She defeated fillies by more than 20 lengths in the G1 Kentucky Oaks and 19 lengths in the G1 Mother Goose Stakes. She also beat the colts in the G1 Preakness, G1 Haskell and G1 Woodward Stakes.
The news of her PPT comes just a fortnight after 2010 USA Horse of the Year Zenyatta (Street Cry) foaled a Bernardini colt at Lane’s End Farm in Kentucky.
