Mine That Bird, Rachel Alexandra worthy of rivalry - USATODAY.com - BALTIMORE — Mine That Bird couldn't quite pull off another miracle Saturday in the Preakness Stakes, but the small, New Mexico-bred gelding proved beyond a doubt that his 50-1 upset in the Kentucky Derby was no fluke.It didn't even matter that the horse lost its rider, when jockey Calvin Borel switched to Rachel Alexandra after the filly's connections decided to enter the Preakness.With Mike Smith aboard, Mine That Bird, as planned, stayed back again, running dead last at the halfway mark. Then, just like in the Derby, the horse made a powerful charge down the stretch and nearly ran down the leader again. This race was 1/16 of a mile shorter than the Derby, however, and that might have been the difference.
