Rachel Alexandra bred to Curlin

Jess Jackson has spent the last few years sparing no expense while scooping up some of racing’s top prospects and turning them into superstars.

Now he’s hoping to create one.

Jackson bred Horse-of-the-Year Rachel Alexandra to two-time Horse of the Year and stablemate Curlin on Monday, creating the potential for the “super horse” Jackson believes could help revitalize the industry.

The two horses met in a breeding shed at Lane’s End Farm, near Versailles, Ky., on Monday. While the results won’t be known for some time, Jackson has planned on getting two of racing’s biggest names together since he purchased Rachel Alexandra days after her record-setting run in the 2009 Kentucky Oaks.
