She is incredibly small. I think her nickname should be the 'Fish' like Real Quiet because of her aerodynamic body. Tiny little speed ball.
Well you can't really compare Rachel and Zenyatta. Considering Zenyatta never ran a grueling 8 race campaign and travel around the country as a 3 year-old.
The x-factor gene can only be received from the mare, and since Secretariat was not a mare, I don't believe she had it.
Looks like she has been injured, judging how she stumbled across the wire today.
Did anyone else realize this little guy rant 10 RACES this year? Jesus, what an effort for him after all that work. Give him all the due awards, PLEASE.
He was also club footed if I am not mistaken.
Please its not like our fruitful lawns are littered to oblivion every upcoming event. Pimlico usually looks like a land fill on Preakness day, Churchill too.
They should have named it the Zenyatta Stakes so her owners would've remembered which soft race to cower to next.
It's only a HOY title? They weren't saying that in 2009 and 2009 when she DIDN'T get it. The Eclipse awards is like the Grammys of horse racing.Sure Zenyatta was a great horse, but a bias. Kind of like Twilight, it gets all of the awards because it has 3 teen heartthrobs and is popular with the media. Are you saying Blame didn't invoke passion and anger? His MULTIPLE death threats say otherwise. Yep, that's what happens when a popular icon loses her "almighty" winning streak. They attack the innocent. Sometimes I question why I even put up with this sport. Everything is fueled by the media. Had Blame had as much media coverage and had a fluffy backstory he'd have 85,000 facebook fans too.
