Rachel Alexandra and Zenyatta had shorter coattails than one might have
imagined when the finalists for Eclipse Awards were announced on
Wednesday by the National Thoroughbred Racing Association.
Although both Rachel Alexandra and Zenyatta - the only horses to
receive votes for Horse of the Year, according to the NTRA - were also
announced as obvious finalists in their respective divisions, and their
trainers are two of the three finalists in that category, only one of
their owners made the cut, just one breeder, and neither jockey.
