Filly Power

In case you’ve been in a cave somewhere and haven’t heard the results of the Preakness Stakes (part two of the Triple Crown), a filly won. Yep, that means a girl horse, Rachel Alexandra, took on the big boys and won. I know, I know, if the race had been much longer, Mine That Bird would have beaten her. But he didn’t. Even though I really want to see a Triple Crown winner and even though Mine That Bird might have been able to do it, I just HAD to root for the babe. You go, girl!
