Rachel Alexandra remained in serious condition at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital on Friday following surgery to repair a section of her small colon.

Veterinarians said her vital signs remain normal and she was brighter, more alert and demonstrating an improved attitude on Friday afternoon.

“ Rachel is a determined fighter. It makes me feel better that she was happy to have a mint. I want to thank all her fans for their incredible devotion to Rachel. Your thoughts mean so much right now, said owner Barbara Blake.

Rachel’s foal continues to do well. She has adjusted well to her nurse mare and enjoyed paddock turnout on Friday at Stonestreet.

Rachel Alexandra was admitted into Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital on Wednesday, February 13th, one day after delivering a 140-pound Bernardini filly. She underwent exploratory abdominal surgery to determine the cause of excess fluid in her abdominal cavity denoting an infection. A damaged section of her small colon was then repaired in a long and technically demanding procedure.
