Curlin covers Rachel Alexandra at Lane's End

THE mating between US horses of the year Curlin and Rachel Alexandra took place at Will Farish's Lane's End Farm in Kentucky on Monday morning.

Both horses were raced by Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke's Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings.

Banke said: “The privilege of owning these horses is like lightning striking twice.

“Rachel Alexandra and Curlin are true champions; both horses embody that intangible equine ideal that separate mere horse from legend. Both Jess and I are so pleased that these powerful bloodlines will pass to future generations.”

Curlin stands at Lane's End at a fee of $40,000. His first crop are yearlings in 2011. It is Rachel Alexandra's first cover.
