Retired Breyer portrait model Rachel Alexandra won her way into the record books with her amazing race record and her amazing tenacity. Two years ago she was retired to Stonestreet farm outside of Lexington Kentucky to start her life as a breeding mare. Last year she gave birth to a wonderful little colt out of Curlin and this year she followed with a beautiful filly from Bernadini. Not long after foaling it was found that she sustained an injury and needed surgery. Good news came this week when Stonestreet let Rachel fan’s all over know that she had been turned out for the first time since her surgery and was most definitely on the mend!
Zenyatta also made news this week with news of her first foal! Zenyatta’s first foal who was born last year was finally given a name. Her owners, the Moss family, had spent almost a year picking the perfect name for her first colt and it was announced this week that he would be known as Cozmic One! They also published a photo that has Coz looking a lot like his portrait Breyer model!
