The Haskell Stakes, Monmouth Park, 8/2/09

The super-dooper filly Rachel Alexandra made the boys look silly in the Haskell at Monmouth Park today. She's a Bad Mamma Jamma, for sure! Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird was six lengths behind when she hit the wire.

The big question is whether or not she will make the 140th Travers Stakes at Saratoga on August 29th. Kentucky Derby longshot Mine That Bird is slated to run, and other contenders include the win, place and show horses from Yesterday's Jim Dandy: Kensei, Warrior's Reward, and Charitable Man.
