http://www.surebetracingnews.com great racing photos and news here.
Have you been to Churchill Downs before? Do you think Zenyatta can retire 20-0 - it would be a remarkable accomplishment. I'm not betting against it.
I admit a bit of bias toward Thoroughbred horses, but Trotters, Saddlbred, and all of the other horse-types you can name are just as beautiful. There is something majestic about a horse.
At least that is the latest information I have. Check out ZDNet for an idea of how it will work. It will be a welcome addition.
Undefeated would be great--the photo of Zenyatta shows what sets her apart: she's a fast horse that makes it look easy. I'd like to see her get around the track safely. Then I'll hope whoever gets possession of her gives her a champion's retirement. Our family has owned horse for years. For the computer people wanting to buy a race horse, I can tell you something my Daddy told me years ago: "They eat every day".
I'm with you Mark, I wouldn't bet against her. Looking forward to the new gallery viewer. Thanks for the Pics. BTW Louisville is my home also.
(The DRF says she drew the 8 post position for the Classic, which is OK-ish, huh?. We'll see.) Never mind the geeks, I appreciate the pix. Thanks. Made me remember college in Danville KY, and horse country there, so unlike the quarter-horse West where I grew up (Ruidoso Downs & Texas). First time I saw the big Red Mile, the white fences and the exotic trotters brought tears to my eyes. No matter what type, the horse is probably the most beautiful athlete in sport.
Which is fine, but will not stop the complaints that the entire page has to re-load when moving on to the next image, if the TR gallery will operate in the same manner as the ZDnet gallery. I don't care about the ETA whatsoever, so no worries there. Thanks. :)
