I know that I've read a lot of comment's on different racing web-sites that racing fan's in both Ireland and the UK are begging for Jerry Moss to send Zenyatta over to Ascot to race. I hate to disappoint the European racing fan's, but at this point I'll just be happy if we can get her to come east of Arkansas. I did, however, just yesterday read a story that said that Zenyatta, after she's retired from racing, may be sent over to be bread to Sea The Stars. The story claimed that John Shirreffs said Sea The Stars is his pick for a sire to bread Zenyatta to. The great UK mare Zarkava is in foal to Sea The Stars right now.
Dutrow's horse, Radiohead, raced in the UK in 2009 with some success. He won the 09' Norfolk stakes at Ascot. Then finished 3rd at York in the 09 Nunthorpe Stakes against older horses. The race, in fact, was won by 8yr.old Boderlesscott. Then, he raced at Newmarket and ran a tremendous race in the 09' Middle Park Stakes. Just narrowly missing running down the still undefeated, and one of the UK's top 3yr.old prospects, Awzaan. Awzaan is very good colt. Radiohead really pushed him as hard as he's been pushed yet in any of his 4 lifetime starts.
Wesley Ward won the Group 2 Queen Mary as well as the Windsor Castle with juveniles at Ascot last year. He also had Cannonball run second in the extremely prestigious Golden Jubilee. Also about six years ago Var, an average US turf sprinter for Bill Mott, was shipped to Europe and promptly won the Prix l'Abbaye on the Arc undercard.
When was the last time a US based sprinter won anything on European turf?
