Maybe not all eyes are on the Breeders Cup preparations at Santa Anita racetrack in California this week. Plenty of people are keeping an eye on a fund-raising auction being conducted by Kendall-Jackson Wines.


Bidding is currently close to $6000 for a private visit with Herself, champion three-year-old filly Rachel Alexandra, in January. The package includes a trip for two to New Orleans, and two nights in the Windsor Court hotel, as well.

If you've been dying to get close to the superstar, here's your chance, but you'd better hurry--bidding closes on Wednesday. This will be the final item in the auction of her collectibles to benefit the V Foundation. Bottles of her Pinot Noir are still available, though the limited edition collectible bottles signed by Calvin Borel are sold out.
