Rachel also had a decent start to her 2010 career in the New Orleans Ladies, and yes I am aware that she lost. However, 2009 horse of the year ran second, and simply looked worn out when she crossed the wire. She did give Zardana a good stretch run, but in the end Zardana's heart finally overcame the power of Rachel. I hope her connections don't completely flip over this loss. If she comes up healthy, I hope they continue to get her fit for the Apple Blossom. I don't think this will effect her in the next race, she just needed to get back on the track, and we all need to remember just how long it has been since she has raced. Rachel, you too stay strong and get fit! We want to see you continue winning too!
(And this I just found humorous, but when you Google Zenyatta, pictures of Rachel come up to...rivalry much?)
