Who Am I ???

Who Am I ??? 615 X 400

 

*Bred in Kentucky, my sire was a champion in his native Australia.


*Unbeaten as a juvenile, I began my career in November at Aqueduct.


*My first stakes win came one month and one week short of four years before my final stakes win.


*I competed in two countries and seven states while winning 38% of my races during my seven-season racing career.


*My excellent local record made me a bit of a cult hero among race fans in one of America’s biggest cities.


*I was 2nd in the same race three times, which was a Grade 2 the first time I competed, but a Grade 1 the next two times.


*In another graded stakes race at the same track, I finished 2nd the first time, before winning it three straight times.


*My owner was the man behind one of the more well known farms in Kentucky’s bluegrass.


*All of my ten career stakes wins came at the same racetrack.


*I ran in a million dollar race three times, and disappointed each time.


*The final four races of my career all came at the same now defunct racetrack.

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.
