Rachel Alexandra showing fiesty behavior in recovery

Stonestreet Farm release:

Veterinarians monitoring the recovery of Stonestreet Farm’s champion Rachel Alexandra’s recovery at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital report the abscess drained on March 7th, continues to respond well to treatment.

Above, Rachel grazes at Rood & Riddle on March 15th.

Rachel Alexandra’s appetite is strong and the Rood & Riddle team noted an increase in “feisty” behavior during her walks last week. The 2009 Horse of the Year continues to show progress as she recovers from abdominal surgery to remove a damaged section of colon following the birth of her filly by Bernardini on February 12th.

Look for the next update on Tuesday, March 26th barring any change in her condition.
