LEXINGTON, KY (WAVE) - The 2009 Horse of the Year, Rachel Alexandra, is responding well to medication.

Veterinarians are monitoring Rachel's recovery at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital and said she is doing well after she had an abscess drained on March 7. 

They also said she is continuing to respond well to treatment and her appetite is strong. They also noted an increase in "feisty" behavior during her walks last week.

In February, Rachel underwent abdominal surgery to remove a damaged part of her colon following the birth of her filly.
