LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky Oaks winner Rachel Alexandra has been sold to Stonestreet Stables, opening the possibility for the filly superstar to run in the Preakness.

Jess Jackson, owner of Stonestreet Stables, announced the sale on Wednesday. The purchase from Dolphus Morrison and Mike Lauffer comes less than a week after Rachel Alexandra posted a record 20-length victory in the Oaks.

Morrison said after the Oaks he had no plans to enter Rachel Alexandra into either of the remaining Triple Crown races. He would have to pay a $100,000 supplement to put Rachel Alexandra in the Preakness on May 16.

Stonestreet also owns 2007-08 Horse of the Year Curlin, who retired last fall as racing’s all-time money winner. Jackson said he plans to breed Rachel Alexandra to Curlin once her racing career is over.
