Now the big countdown...Queen Z's been moved to the foaling barn!

(Right now, btw, Vegas is saying something like 50-1 the Curlin-Rachael Alexandra foal is in the Derby in three years, 100-1 on No. At the current odds I'd happily but $20 on no. I'll be impressed if he makes it out of Maiden Special Weights and fully expect him to be nothing of consequence. Great race mares rarely produce great runners--biggest disaster was Genuine Risk, with two foals that were worthless in flat racing and one slipped pregnancy, and of course that was the one by Secretariat.)

Z will get her own thread ;)

As to your other point, there's about a 1:1235 chance of little Rachel/Curlin making the field. Live foal births estimates for 2012 by the Jockey Club are approx 24,700. I still wouldn't make a bet either.

Personally, I don't care if he races or not. Everything went well, there was a live birth and the little guy's doing well. That's all that's important to me.

Although, I do know there's a lot of money riding on this lil guy. I'm not that far into a fantasy world here. ;) However, I do believe that anything after what I posted up there is just gravy now. :)

There's a cute new video of the little guy on the bloodhorse website. He's getting a whole lot of attention and petting, and seems to mostly like it. He's pretty adorable.

Just announced after the running of the Curlin Stakes at Saratoga was the name of RA and Curlin's colt: Jess's Dream. Kind of meh to me.

Stonestreet is having another Meet Rachel day, on October 12. There are 4 sessions, 25 fans max per session, rsvp instructions on their facebook page.

I put in for it. I figure, what the heck, maybe I can meet the Princess (sorry, I have to call Zenyatta the queen, but I love Rachel, too). We'll see if I get in.

So I was notified today that I get to meet Rachel Alexandra on October 12. :) Who would ever have thought I'd get to meet Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra within 6 weeks of each other? :D We won't get to feed her, but I have always heard the farm hosts a very nice visit for people. I will also check about seeing Union Rags when I'm there, and of course spend time with my boy Tinner over at Old Friends.
