Odd that no one ever mentions the incredible ordeal that HotY great Rachel Alexandra went through recently after delivery a baby.

Although Rachel beat me many times (Macho Uno,Wodward, etc) imo, when healthy she was one of the fastest and greatest fillies of all-time.
After all the horrible things we read in racing, Rachel's comeback from a life-threatening situation due to child bearing complications is a testament to the champion she was.
As my cuzin Fredo often says, Godspeed Rachel.
