Rachel Alexandra Will Not Race at Belmont Stakes

By  | 

Rachel Alexandra will not be running in the Belmont Stakes.

The co-owner of the Preakness winner announced the decision Friday. Jess Jackson says the spectacular filly deserves a vacation.

The move clears the way for jockey Calvin Borel to return to Mine That Bird in the June 6 Belmont. Borel will be trying for a personal Triple Crown. He won the Kentucky Derby with Mine That Bird and the Preakness with Rachel Alexandra.
