Here’s What We’ve Been Waiting For: Zenyatta Racing Again (It’s Apple Blossum Time in Hot Springs, Ark.)
Is this any way to treat a lady?
I’ve been waiting for this race for a long time…Zenyatta racing again, racing in the $500,000 Apple Blossum, at Oaklawn Park.
She’ll be running against four other fillies and mares will be in the starting gate for the 1 1/8-mile race,.
Zenyatta, of ocurse, is an overwhelming favorite to join Citation and Cigar as American horses that won their first 16 races.
This was going to be the first meeting between Zenyatta and 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra. But Rachel’s first race of 2010 was a loss and it was clear she wasn’t quite ready to show her best.
So, that will have to wait.
