Rachel is beaten! Zardana, trained by John Sherrifs (Zenyatta’s trainer!) edged Rachel Alexandra by about a length. No excuses– she had a good clean trip, but she perhaps was a little rusty after 6 months off. Let’s hope she can improve off this race to meet the big Z next month.
The Santa Margarita starts in about 15 minutes…let’s see what Zenyatta has to show this year.
Zenyatta wins handily! It was another trademark come-from-behind win, and she had plenty of gas left. The undefeated Queen looks more than ready to take on Rachel next month!
