Zakynthos down by a nose
May 09, 2012
Empress Zakynthos ran a tough race sun at Geelong. Taking the sit on the leader's she run on with the favorite fighting to the line, but missing out for 1st by a nose. It was a very exciting race watching her give her all and really wanting the line.
Racey Louie also showed ability running 3rd in his trial at geelong after missing the jump slightly. He let down well, but still has to learn to fight for the finish. This horse has come a long way after only two preps. He is now on a break after showing shin soreness.
Port Warden and Valentino's Dancer are now up galloping and are holding up beautifully. They are both already made race horses just waiting for the fitness to run.
Rocking Force will not be taking on the great mare in the Goodwood. He thinks he is the fastest horse in Geelong and I'm not going to break his spirit by getting him slaughtered. He will be entered for the straight 6 at Flemington next weekend.
