FOAL OF THE YEAR?

By Bob Silbernagel

This photo is of Rachel Alexandra's new foal, born Sunday near Lexington, Ky. Rachel Alexandra was the thoroughbred racing's Horse of the Year in 2009. The sire of her colt was Curlin, Horse of the Year in 2007 and 2008. Obviously, the youngster comes from some pretty good genetic stock.

To read more about Rachel Alexandra's first foal, click on The Washington Post link immediately below. But to read more about where the speed gene originated, read the post just below this one.
