What the Nation is saying about the 2011 Gazelle Handicap (G1)...

Due to a very light racing schedule the past two years, Awesome Feather is not one of the most talked about horses heading to the 2012 Breeders’ Cup. That might be a big mistake.Read More

  • Herman'sKennel · Feather has a chance to Bookend the Breeders Cup...I want to live to see it , I have loved her for so long, I still remember rewinding that stallion stakes race over and over and over, telling my husband how wonderful she was and just about on her fouth win I said to him if she ships to the BC I am picking her... To Have loved a horse for so long and been able to meet her and kiss her and know heris the best gift, I have met Zenny and it was life changing, but Awesome is different, she is just such a determined girl, to comeback after 2, count them, 2 injuries, wow, what does that tell you? She is so brave and so wonderful, she is just Awesome.... · 546 days ago ·

She's an amazing undefeated horse. I love her. I wasn't a big fan of her at first, but now I love her. Two Grade 1's, 5 graded stakes, and her maiden. Impressive, from a filly who just had a HUGE layoff.
Picking ZATT's Star of the Week 52 times a year can be a mixed bag. Sometimes it is easy, with one horse dominating in such a way that I do not give the decision a second thought. In some weeks, it comes down to a pair of performances in which I need to make a difficult decision that is likely to be...Read More
I knew she would win it!
