Zenyatta's owners return to Churchill

Forgive Jerry Moss if he enters upon Churchill Downs this week with mixed emotions.


On the face of it, the sight of the place should trip nothing but blissful memories. Moss and his wife, Ann, took their first turn on the national stage in 1994 when their filly Sardula won the 120th running of the Kentucky Oaks.
