Rachel Alexandra Wins the Haskell


Rachel Alexandra sped around the far turn and rolled past the boys once again to win the $1.25 million Haskell Invitational in Oceanport, N.J, establishing herself as one of the greatest fillies in thoroughbred racing.

When the regal bay filly returned to the winner's circle with Calvin Borel patting her neck, the Monmouth Park crowd of 37,090 cheered mightily for racing's brightest star.

Rachel Alexandra, the 1-2 favorite, returned $3, $2.20 and $2.10. Summer Bird, with Kent Desormeaux aboard, paid $3.40 and $2.60. Munnings was third and paid $3.20.

Papa Clem was fourth, followed by Duke of Mischief, Atomic Rain and Bunker Hill.

VENUS UPSET BY BARTOLI IN BANK OF THE WEST FINAL

Venus Williams was upset by France's Marion Bartoli 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 in the championship match of the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, Calif.

Williams, making her first appearance at the event since 2005, reached her seventh final in eight appearances at Stanford.

She's won two titles, but none since 2002.

The eighth-seeded Bartoli, who lost in last year's final, played a steady match against the second-seeded Williams and will likely move up two places into 12th when the next world rankings are released. Williams will remain third.

Williams told a record crowd of 3,852 that "Marion was too good today."
