You’ll do fine! One on one is easier than 3 older kids which are more mentally taxing!

Reflecting on Rachel Alexandra and a Horse of the Year triple

 Wins the Martha Washington Stakes in 1:36 2/5s, a full second faster than what Derby hopeful Old Fashioned did in the Southwest Stakes (G3) on the same card.

 Still holds the record for margin of victory in the Kentucky Oaks at 20 ¼ lengths.

 Fifth filly to win the Preakness Stakes since Nelly Morse in 1924, and only filly to do so at the current distance of 1 3/16 miles. In the last 10 years, only War Of Will and California Chrome finished it faster. She also became the first horse to win from the 13 post. 

 Set the stakes record for the Mother Goose Stakes at 1:46.33 at Belmont Park in a race-best 19 1/4-length win. 

 Ran the second-fastest Haskell on record at 1:47.21, only bested by Bet Twice and Majestic Light who both ran it in 1:47 flat. 

 First female and only 3-year old filly to ever win the Woodward Stakes. 

 Only Triple Crown race-winning filly to defeat the winners of the other spring classics that season: Derby hero Mine That Bird in the Preakness, and Belmont winner Summer Bird in the Haskell
