As compelling, or not, you found her seasonal debut, I believe the more interesting thing is all the talk surrounding where her connections chose to make her first start of the year.Read More

  • HorseDynasty · skipaway2000, My orginal question pertained to something that coul apply here, and is the DRF among other websites/articles (NOT discussions) not often linked to? Not to mention, it pertained to a race statement by Mr. Zipse. If that is taboo, let me know now and I will figure out how to go from there. · 764 days ago ·

  • dubby30 · No reason to start off against males, but certainly wouldnt be appropriate to run in an ungraded stakes, there is a race at Oaklawn Park called the Grade 3 Azeri Stakes which has a $150k purse. Zenyatta's people felt no need to face males but 1 time per year, if facing less than stellar females was ok for her then it should be the same way with Grace. · 827 days ago ·

Jess Jackson's decision to pull Rachel Alexandra from the Apple Blossom at Oaklawn Park was neither a surprise nor an imprudent decision. The Rachel Alexandra who ran Saturday would not have stood a chance against Zenyatta. Even with $5 million up for grabs, it would have made no sense to send Rache...Read More
  • medlocke · I truly believe, and have since the very beginning when it was announced, that this whole Apple Blossom Invitational fiasco has been nothing but a complete "FARCE" by Jess Jackson from day one. I don't think he ever intended to have Rachel Alexandra at Oaklawn in April to race Zenyatta. What Jackson did do was role the dice. When that 5 million dollar offer came in from Oaklawn, he ask for an extra week for Rachel to "allegedly" train, never believing that Oaklawn would agree to his request. Then when they refused him, he would able to save face for both he and his "over-hyped" mare. But when Oaklawn officials and the Moss's agreed to the date change, right then and there Jackson had backed himself into a corner. A corner, mind you, he's been maneuvering to get out of for week's now. Even before Rachel's 2010 racing debut. So when Rachel came up short in the New Orleans Ladies, he had the out he so desperately wanted. It may not have been how he wanted it, but it was an out nevertheless. Jackson may be a pompous ass, but he's not stupid. He knows that Zenyatta is a beast on the track. And deep down, he knows that Zenyatta is simply "TOO MUCH MARE" for Rachel to hold off in the stretch once she unleashes that devastating closing drive that she possesses. Zenyatta is just too big and too physically strong for Rachel to withstand that closing onslaught. An onslaught that better foes than Rachel have tried and failed to overcome. TJMO. · 1491 days ago ·
