ELMONT, N.Y. -- Rachel Alexandra, the brilliant filly who won the Preakness Stakes, will not run in the 141st Belmont Stakes, her owner Jess Jackson said in a press release late Friday afternoon.

After careful consideration, we have decided not to run Rachel Alexandra in the Belmont Stakes next weekend. We have advised Calvin Borel, Chip Woolley and Belmont of our decision. We thank them, the media and the fans for their many courtesies and patience while we pondered.
