    Can't get the first steps, but that star, those legs, everything's precious.

    Congrats to New Momma Rachel Alexandra-Precautionary Hospital Admission

    Transported to Rood and Riddle for "pain management related to birth".
    I don't know a thing about the care and feeding of horses, but I hope this is not a big deal. The other boards I'm on for thoroughbred racing are alite with this story. Hope she feels better soon.

    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.
