Racing fans will soon be able to do more than toast Rachel Alexandra in the winner's circle. The super filly is about to get her own line of wines.
Kendall-Jackson Winery announced Tuesday a limited edition of wines honoring their 3-year-old will be ready for the holiday season.
The winery says fewer than 300 cases of the wines will be produced and each bottle will have Rachel's image. Jess Jackson and wife Barbara Banke are co-owners of the winery. Jackson purchased Rachel Alexandra in May after the filly won the Kentucky Oaks by 20 1/4 lengths.
Rachel Alexandra is clearly traveling in more refined circles these days. She is featured in the recent issue of Vogue, with the layout shot by fashion photographer Steven Klein. The magazine spread grew out of a trip to the Preakness by Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
Rachel Alexandra won the Haskell Invitational against colts Sunday, beating Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird by six lengths for her eighth victory in a row. She also won against the boys in the Preakness Stakes in May.
