Summary
Rejected by her mother and nursed by another mare, the little foal grew into a tall, skinny and scruffy filly with paltry muscles. But Rachel Alexandra grew up to become one of the most remarkable racehorses in history. Racing against bigger, stronger males, Rachel Alexandra thrived and went on to win the Preakness, the first filly to do so in 85 years, and the Woodward, a feat never before achieved by a filly. Aronson provide an emotional look at both the humans and horses who pour their hearts and souls into the world of Thoroughbred training and racing
