“Rachel Alexandra owes us nothing. As a three-year-old, she set standards and records that no filly before her ever achieved…Although her fans were thrilled by a series of spectacular victories, I believe they, as we, were simply awed time and again by her sheer beauty, courage and athleticism. As you know, despite top training and a patient campaign, Rachel Alexandra did not return to her 2009 form. I believe it’s time to retire our Champion and reward her with a less stressful life. We are delighted that she will retire healthy and happy to our beautiful farm in Kentucky.”

— Jess Jackson, co-owner of Rachel Alexandra.
