This is a spurious allegation. Zenyatta's connections have never employed rabbits. Zardana is not a 'need to lead' type that jumps to the front and sets brisk fractions. Zardana's owner, Arnold Zetcher, has always been very ambitious and have raced her against the best (including Rachel Alexandra). If the intention was to use Zardana as a rabbit, they would have ran her to the front. Zenyatta's connections wouldn't have needed a rabbit as there were already a couple of one-dimensional front runners scheduled to run in the Vanity. It's preposterous to think Zardana was being entered as a rabbit for Zenyatta's benefit. If they wanted to use a rabbit they would have picked a horse that fits that description.
