I know, I know it's Rachel's weekend. And she's finally looking like her old self. Different day, different distance, a whole lot more money and it looks like an easy spot. And her last workout looked sharp. As the connections said, "loose and happy". Loose being the operative word here I think, because there have been times when she's looked "tight and cranky". But Rachel looms large this Saturday and I hope to see a "Rachelesque" performance.
Meanwhile, the Queen worked this morning on the West Coast. Just recently found this website, http://www.focusedfilly.com/, and if you haven't checked it out, it's a must see. Watch the workout from this morning and be sure to click on Zenyatta's gallop from yesterday, July 22, entitled "California Gurl" and make sure your speakers are ON.
If I'm not mistaken, you were the turf "queen" long before The Big Z became a "queen." In my book, you both get equal billing.
