(reprint from twoweek ago)…Apparantly their has been controversy over Zenyatta on the Internet. I received many e-mails…so here is my take on Zenyatta…She’s as good as good ever has gotten…read on
On Zenyatta : I have now become so enamored with Zenyatta, I consider her to be one of my 5 all time greatest racehorses. Since I started playing horses in 1976 and was only a casual observer before 1976, I simply don’t go back before that time. Also, I am only commenting on horses that have raced here in the USA. So before 1976 I am including Secretariat as one of my 5 greatest horses, I did see him run many times, as did most people who were into sports and in their 20’s during the 1970, so I fee very comfortable including him. So really this is a discussion of the 5 greatest horses AFTER SECRETARIAT. Furthermore, I make almost no distinction between the top 5, they all had their various strengths. In fact they were all really really strong and they all have 1 similiarity, they gave weight away to the competition and beat them doing their thing. Seattle Slew on the front and Zenyatta coming from behind. So here are the top 5 in my book in chronological order: SECRETARIAT, FOREGO, SEATTLE SLEW, AFFIRMED AND ZENYATTA.
Today’s Free Play….Hollywood’s Race $8…My top rated hore is Stormy Ambition who has a 71.5 rating, the next best ratiing is 69.0, so the 5/1 morning line is really appealling…That’s the play to win/place with a bottom price of only 5/2. At least that’s thee way I see it. (Note Gold Schleigel is scratched)…
