Who says girls can't compete with boys?

If I were a horse, I'd want to be Rachel Alexandra. Wait, that sounded a little strange, didn't it? Oh well, it's Saturday and Saturdays, at least here at Rhode to Fitness, are meant to be a little strange.

My point, if it can be called a point, is that I admire strong women. So here's a clip of Rachel Alexandra, the beautiful filly whose victory in the Preakness Stakes in May stunned the horse-racing world, tearing it up with the boys again last week and becoming the first filly to win the Woodward Stakes at Saratoga Springs, N.Y. I especially love it that she edged out a horse named Macho Again.

Come to think of it, maybe I wouldn't want to be Rachel Alexandra, running in circles with Calvin Borel on my back, whipping my behind. No, I think I'd rather be some anonymous filly running free in a beautiful pasture.

And as for that announcer, does anyone have a tranquilizer gun?
