Brendan O'Meara, author of Six Weeks in Saratoga
Monday, October 10th at 7 PM, Carmichael's will host a special event with Brendan O'Meara, author of Six Weeks in Saratoga: How Three-Year-Old Filly Rachel Alexander Beat the Boys and Became Horse of the Year.Claire Novak of ESPN sports has said, "The [book] is one of enjoyable promise, and as the author recounts little moments and inside conversations, he provides and intimate glimpse into the lives of the figures he covers." We are delighted to announce that Calvin Borel, the jockey who rode Rachel Alexander to victory, will be in attendance.
When Rachel Alexandra thundered to a stylish win against the boys in the 2009 Preakness Stakes, her connections came to the 141st Saratoga Race Course meeting wanting more than just another victory. They wanted Horse of the Year.
