  • If you liked Zenyatta...

       November 07, 2010

    (see all of our 2010 Breeders Cup articles)

    I know a lot of casual fans watched Zenyatta's "quest for perfection" (ugh - thanks ESPN) yesterday. It was likely Zenyatta's last race, but there's no reason to make it your last race. One of the wonderful things about racing is that there's always another horse. They won't be Zenyatta, but why not follow one of these horses next year? It's not too early to start thinking about Breeders Cup 2011 (Nov. 4-5 back at Churchill Downs).

    Awesome Feather:

    Why?: She's the likely two-year old filly champion.
    What's Next?: She's actually scheduled to be sold today, so it's kind of up in the air. No matter where she ends up, I'd expect her to run again sometime in late winter/early spring.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Ladies Classic

    Blind Luck:

    Why?: Zenyatta, Jr. She's not quite as good, but she has the same last-to-first running style.
    What's Next?: She'll go back to California and probably rest up until later spring.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Ladies Classic

    Frankel:

    Why?: He's Europe's version of Uncle Mo and named after the great American trainer Bobby Frankel (father of Bethanny for fans of the Real Housewives of NYC).
    What's Next?: He'll aim for the 2000 Guineas and Epsom Derby in England next spring.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Turf

    Lady Giacamo:

    Why?: She's a rare true black filly and a daughter of 2005 Kentucky Derby winner Giacamo.
    What's Next?: Although based in Texas, she's supposed to ship to Hollywood Park to run in the Grade 1 Hollywood Starlet Stakes on Dec. 11th.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Ladies Classic, Filly & Mare Sprint

    Lookin At Lucky:

    Why?: With the likely retirements of Zenyatta & Blame, Lookin At Lucky will be one of the best horses in training.
    What's Next?: He'll go back to California. Since his connections don't shy away from big events, I wouldn't be surprised to see him aim for the Dubai World Cup in March.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Classic

    Sidney's Candy:

    Why?: He's got a fearless, front-running style.
    What's Next?: He's supposed to be sold, but it hasn't happened yet. For now, he'll go back to California and after his respectable finish in the BC Mile, I'd expect he'd stay on turf this winter.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Mile

    Take Control:

    Why?: He's a lightly-raced 3-year old by A.P. Indy out of the champion mare Azeri.
    What's Next?: He was injured earlier this year and looks to be back in action soon, so look for him this winter at Santa Anita.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Classic

    To Honor And Serve:

    Why?: He's a nice-looking potential Derby horse - your alternative to Uncle Mo.
    What's Next?: He'll go down to winter in Florida, probably starting in February or March.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Classic

    Uncle Mo:

    Why?: He's the unbeaten favorite for the 2011 Kentucky Derby.
    What's Next?: He'll go down to winter in Florida and will probably run again down there sometime in March.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Classic

    Winter Memories:

    Why?: She's an adorable, distinctive gray filly with an explosive stretch run.
    What's Next?: There aren't a ton of good racings for fillies on the turf, but look for her to pop up sometime in late winter/early spring in Florida.
    Breeders Cup 2011 Division: Filly & Mare Turf

    KV - I picked out Lady Giacamo for you - she's quite a beauty.
