Following an uneventful flight from Louisville, Ky., Preakness winner Rachel Alexandra arrived safely at Belmont Park late Tuesday afternoon for her next start, Saturdays Grade 1, $300,000 Mother Goose Stakes for 3-year-old fillies.

Accompanied by assistant trainer Scott Blasi, exercise rider Dominic Terry, the Stonestreet Stables security team, and four other thoroughbreds, Rachel Alexandra departed Churchill Downs at noon (EDT) for the 90-minute flight to Farmingdale, N.Y., and arrived at trainer Steve Asmussens barn on the Belmont Park backstretch by van at about 4:30 p.m.

After a few turns around the shedrow to stretch her legs, and a bath, the daughter of Medaglia dOro was bedded down in stall No. 5 the same stall previously occupied by two-time Horse of the Year Curlin at 5:30 p.m.

Four and a half hours, barn to barn, thats pretty good, said Blasi. Shes a pretty good traveler, though shes shipped to Oaklawn Park, and the Fair Grounds, and of course to Baltimore.
