What do you get when you breed two Horse of the Year winners? 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra was bred to Curlin, Horse of the Year in 2007 and 2008, on February 21st.

Certainly Jess Jackson, Barbara Banke (Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings) and Harold T. McCormick, who own Rachel Alexandra hope you get an extraordinary racehorse. Of course

since Jackson and Banke also own 80% of Curlin they have developed a taste for owning super stars.

The real question will be determined in a couple of years when the offspring of Rachel Alexandra and Zenyatta (who will be bred to Bernardini) may meet on the track!
