Move over Serena. Sit down Venus. Go home Mia. There’s a new superstar female athlete in town, and she’s lightning fast and gorgeous and worth millions. Not only is she fast, but she’s faster then ALL the boys. In fact, she’s the first filly in 85 years to win the Preakness (which was her sixth straight win, where she finished a stride and half ahead of super fast hottie, Mine That Bird, in an all-male field).
After turning in a dominating performance earlier today to win the Haskell Invitational, Rachel Alexandra is officially the breakout star of the year and one hot fast bitch. And even if you are a horse, if you are that fast and hot and rich AND female, its only moments before Anna Wintour and the rest of the fashion world starts sending you free clothes, Dior handbags, and unsolicited bottles of Smart Water (sorry Jenny). So no one should have been surprised that Rachel Alexander, after her Preakness win, was an obvious choice for a titillating two page spread in the August issue of Vogue looking sexy and shiny and exuding the confidence that only a styling team, makeup artist, and a $700 hair cut could buy you. Just as long as Rachel Alexandra’s tiny glossy little ankles don’t snap as she zooms past all the boys (a tragic problem that has been seen in the racing world all too frequently in recent times), you will probably soon see this highly competitive filly (even her jockey, Calvin Borel, says she’s a nasty girl: “When you come up and she eyeballs you, she won’t let you get by”) in the pages of Elle and W Magazine hawking Rolex watches, Cartier pens, really huge diamond earrings, and because flat is not fabulous, definitely Bumpits.
