careless Jewel went straight to the front as expected, but she failed to settle and ran off under Landry. She stopped on a dime, and her early antics set things up Zenyatta's stablemate Life Is Sweet, who swept to an easy score. Mushka rallied for the place, and Music Note filled out the tri for the 2nd straight year. Life Is Sweet (1st) - $18.20, $8, $5 Mushka (2nd) - $12.80, $6.40 Music Note (3rd) - $3.20 Proviso (4th) $1 Exacta - $85.80 $1 Trifecta - $523.60 .10 cent Superfecta - $253.34
Even if Zenyatta goes this route instead of the Classic, first wins the Lady's Secret,with the kind of year Careless Jewel, Icon Project, Swift Temper, and Music Note have had, beating this group and ending her season at 14-0 should put her in the discussion for at least co-HOY, unless Summer Bird wins the Classic. Then it's a done deal, or should be. But baring Summer Bird winning the Classic and Zenyatta ending 14-0 it must be considered. It's not Zenyatta's fault that Rachael Alexandra is shunning the Breeders Cup. I thought championship caliber horses were supposed to run in championship caliber races.
