Zipse At The Track

Who Am I ???

Who Am I ??? 615 X 400


*My owner purchased my dam in foal with yours truly for a mere $2,300.

*All of my first 48 races were run at four different tracks in the same state.

*Outside of that state, I went undefeated in one lifetime start, taking a Grade 2 by a nose.

*The biggest victory of my career was the fifth in a six-race winning streak.

*I delayed the running of that prestigious Grade 1 race by breaking through the gate with an assistant starter in tow.

*A winner of better than 50% of my career starts, I won at least one race in five straight seasons.

*I was neither a chestnut nor a bay, and my breeding could easily be called obscure.

*I won the only Derby I ever entered, but it was not the most famous one.

*My favorite racetrack was the host of 19 of my career victories.

*That oval was also the site of my two track record breaking performances, accomplished six days apart.

*In my career finale, I was off the board for only the second time in my last two dozen starts, while the year’s Kentucky Derby winner finished 1st.

 ZATT's Star of the Week 


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 horse owner and graduate of DePaul University, Brian lives just outside of Louisville with his wife Candice and daughter Kendra.
