About me/racing interests:
My Name is Rebecca! I live in Queensland Australia, and i love horse racing! it started one day last year, i decided to look up "Greatest male & Female Racehorse" and it came up with Secretariat and Ruffian! i fell in-love with Ruffian! i was going through a VERY hard time, because of my father, and court cases and what , anyways, Ruffian inspired me not to give up, she was so strong, and she didnt give up, she never ever gave up!
I have everything to do with Ruffian, i have her movie DVD, 5 big posters, a wall hanging i made myself, a locket with Ruffian on and inside it, my computer desktop continually goes through different pictures of Ruffian AND all of the sites i go to all have a Ruffian background! Yes, i am not affraid to say that i am obsessed with Ruffian, but my love for Ruffian does not cloud my judgement of other great fillies/mares such as Zenyatta or Rachel Alexandra, as a matter of fact i idolise both of them since both of them beat Ruffian record time for 1 1/8m! Which is great!
I love all racehorses, but my love for Ruffian is stronger then the rest, and like i said, i dont let that cloud my judgement on other racehorses...
I am currently working with one of the Bundaberg Racehorse Trainers, i havnt gotten an apprenticeship yet because i am not 15, damn 2 MONTHS! I started monday last week, and i have already become extremely close to a 3yro filly named "God She's Raunchy" or just Raunchy, she isnt a great distance horse but she is a great sprinter! Anyways, im always at her end of the stable, because she gets angry and kicks the back of her stable if im not there, they said it only started after i got there... Lol, i always rub her between her eyes, and if i stop she gets angry and puts her head under my hand! its too cute! i love her so much!
There is another 3yro filly there named "Queen Of Happiness" now, she is a good horse, shes ran 1st an a few races, won around $80,000+ and she is 16 1/2 hands and as soon i saw her i immediately thought of Zenyatta!
Another 3yro filly there named "Over The Page" and she also has run a few 1st's and i swear she is a female look-a-like to Secretariat!
I love them, and i was told that once i turn 15 IN 2 MONTHS <3 ile be able to do some track work with them!
Also, there is a filly yearling coming in, and i get to name her! im thinking something like "Terlinguila Star" ive always loved that name fro some reason!!!
Anyways, better stop typing now =P
How did I get into racing?
I got into racing because of the filly Ruffian!
Favorite racing moment?
When Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness Stakes AND the CANNOT FORGET moment when Rags To Riches beat Curlin in the Belmont Stakes!
