A $5-million race if Zenyatta, Rachel Alexandra show up
That was the announcement Thursday by Oaklawn President Charles J. Cella, who said he had spoken to the owners of the two horses and they indicated enthusiasm for the race.
The 4-year-old Rachel Alexandra was named Horse of the Year in 2009, beating out the 6-year-old unbeaten Zenyatta.
