Older Comments about Rail Trip: Challenger for Zenyatta?...

Horses like, "Upset" & "Onion" become famous because they beat invinciple horses like Man 'O War & Secretariat - that's why they run the race!! She's in rare company now, but a closing style is vulnerable to a front-ender with bottom and a slow pace.
Zenyatta can be beat by a trifecta against her: a race at 8.5 or shorter, a tandem entry to ensure a very very slow early pace and a bad trip on her part. There are only about 30 undefeated T-breds of all time, i.e. Flying Childers, Ajax, Barcaldine, Eclipse, Kincesn, St. Simon, El Rio ROy, Crucifix, Bay Middleton, Herod, Ormonde, Hickory O, Colin, Asteroid, Ribot, Nearco, Bahran, Personal Ensign, Amercican Eclipse, Rare Brick, Ruffian with an asterisk, The Tetrach and a few others.
no horse in the world can beat zenyatta unless something goes wrong and she gets hurt.
Do want QUEEN ZEN charge for murder she will kill RAIL TRIP any given day or night
Thanks medlocke.I'm VERY interested to know what you guys think, opinions please:)
He's the one. He's exactly the kind of colt I've been talking about when I make my comments that Zenyatta, if she's ever beaten in her career, will be beaten by a special colt, not any filly or mare, Rachel Alexandra included. Rail Trip run's the synthetics for a male just as equally well as Zenyatta does for a female. I hope the two hook up against each other in the 2010 Hollywood Gold Cup. That should really be a race to see. I believe Rail Trip would race Zenyatta closer at Hollywood Park than any of the 2009 Classic colt's did at Santa Anita. JMO.
