Lol I have to say this post gave me a little artistic inspiration this morning So I sketched up a pic of the current queens of racing; Zenyatta, Rachel Alexandra & Rags to Riches.

She gives me a heart attack every time she races. Always laying back, always threatening to lose and then just flying on by. .....There have been a few races when I thought she was done for.

Well you can send a pic (or post one on my thread "Wildest Art Journal") & I could give him a try!

I know eh? She's like this big machine; her run just looks so darn effortless and like she's barely trying, but she's passing all the other horses like lightning. She's got such a long, easy stride.

She's so great, I love her. It always seems like she's teasing everyone. "Oh, you're going to beat me! ........NOT!!!!" Amazing!

Absolutely amazing, what a game little filly!

Very interesting to me is the fact that she wasn't raced until late into her 3 year old year - kind of makes you wonder, doesn't it? Only time will tell, but it would be nice if people looked at her and questioned the intelligence of racing undeveloped 2 year olds.

They should have tried her for the Triple Crown! She would've smashed all the boys (& Rachel or course). But then again if she wasn;t raced until 3 she probably wouldn't have had enough points to enter...

She didn't even race the first time until long after the Triple Crown was over. She raced in November of 2007, at closer to 4 years old (3 years, 7 months) for the first time.
