Finally, a race.

Oi. I don't know where to begin.

The connections of Rachel Alexandra suddenly are very interested in racing Zenyatta...however...the Apple Blossom was too soon for Rachel to get in top Rachel's connections suggested a series of three races that would 'rival the Triple Crown'. First off...really? Do you really thing it would rival the Triple Crown? Yes, they would be amazing with the potentially the top horses showing up...but there is just something special about the Triple Crown that can't be matched...Anyway, it seems like an odd request, that left many unanswered questions. (ESPN: Owner Proposes 3 race series)

Moss (co-owner of Zenyatta) was confused by Jackson's (Rachel's owner) request.

"I have no idea what he's even talking about. Which three races? And where? And when?"

But it seems all that mess has been fixed. After Jackson asked, was denied, and asked Oaklawn again, they finally caved and moved the Apple Blossom back so Rachel will show. Friday, April 9th is the Apple Blossom Showdown where these two titans will meet should all go as planned.

I know I keep going on about this...but again with the Seabiscuit, War Admiral thing...the HOY and East Coasters are making quite a few demands.

Well, that's all for now! Hope the girls stay healthy! Because this is a race I want to see!

  1. Great to see you still writing. Hope you're having a good year!

  2. Yes, look what you started. =P I am appreciative. haha.

  3. I don't know about you, but I'm getting nervous just about the March 13, 2010 Apple Blossom "prep" races!

  4. P. S.
    Oaklawn Park has a great "saveable" Zenyatta photo.

  5. Oh I know! I just hope they both stay sound! They are two simply amazing horses!

    And those pictures...are quite amazing as well! XD

  6. Just throwing out there how sad I am that it looks like Rachel is taking a pass on the Blossom...but I guess...if those two should ever meet...they should both be at their best. Still sad though.
