Zipse At The Track

Who Am I ???

Who Am I ??? 615 X 400

 

*Bred in the East Coast, I was the product of a real family affair, from breeder, to owner, to trainer.


*I was a stakes winner in each of my three seasons on the racetrack.


*A winner of better than 50% of my races, I broke the track record in two of my stakes wins.


*Known as an oats, hay, and water horse, I never once raced on Lasix, nor any other medication for that matter.


*My biggest career win came with my tail tied, and at double digit odds.


*I hold the distinction of having won a stakes race on the card of one of America’s top days, two years in a row.


*My initial stakes win came in New Jersey, as did one of my grade 1 stakes wins.


*One of my graded stakes wins came at a Maryland track that no longer hosts live racing.


*My career was cut short by injury, but I did go out an impressive winner.


*I spent almost my entire long life in the same county.


*Unfortunately, none of my sons or daughters reached my racing heights, although one daughter produced a Kentucky Derby favorite.

Meet Brian Zipse 


Brian has been a passionate fan of horse racing since birth. Taken to the races at a very young age, he has been lucky enough to see all the greats in person from Secretariat, Forego, and Ruffian through Rachel Alexandra, Zenyatta, and American Pharoah. 

Before coming to the Nation, Brian displayed his love for the sport through the development of his horse racing website, which quickly became one of the most popular blogs in the game. 
  
As Editor of Horse Racing Nation, Brian authors a daily column as Zipse at the Track, or ZATT for short, and adds his editorial flare to the overall content of the website. Brian also consults for leading contest site Derby Wars, and is a Vox Populi committee member. 
  
A graduate of DePaul University, Brian lives just outside of Louisville with his wife Candice and daughter Kendra.
