I will have a few stories to post later on the Breeders' Cup, but until I have time to jog my memory and share those with you, here are some things to keep you busy...


I had a chance to get to know Ernie Munick in the field. He is a genuine guy and enjoys learning/teaching on the industry. Breeders' Cup 360 is a great idea and you should watch the "Clockers' Corner" series. Ernie truly does catch trainers, horses and personalities from a candid view. Steve Haskin, Rick Samuels and several other familiar faces can be seen, as you see what I often see around the track through his lens. (even glimpses of me!)



 Here is a little something I made on the flight back from LA to LEX. It is a wallpaper for your Computer, click to download/save.
Thank Anne for the photo, which you can order from our Photo Store!

Awesome photo! Thanks for providing that 'treat' for us. :-)

(Wow, Zenyatta's frame just overpowers that other horse. At first I wondered why did Zenyatta have three front legs. lol) ;-)

Here's a great poll question or just a great conversation piece to throw out there.

Who would win a race between, Zenyatta, Rachel Alexandra, Personal Ensign, Go for Wand and Ruffian? !!!!!!!!!

All super fillies and mares !!!

Thank you everyone, if you demand it, maybe a Rachel wallpaper would magically appear somewhere.

12 Nov 2009 2:12 PM

hmb beat me to it- Z looks like she's got far too many legs :)

12 Nov 2009 2:22 PM

Thank you, Adam. Like the great Secretariat, Zenyatta has a special special place in my heart. What an amazing champion!!

Thankyou Adam, my gosh this is beautiful on my computer. Dang man, you done a beautiful job.

12 Nov 2009 3:45 PM

Now we know how she runs so fast!  It's those extra legs!

Thanks for the wallpaper, Adam.  It looks great on my desktop.

12 Nov 2009 3:47 PM

Adam, thank you for sharing the Zenyatta wallpaper.  She looks amazing on my computer.  However, I am a HUGE Rachel fan and would love a Rachel wallpaper.  So, can one magically appear???

Thank you, Adam. It looks like Mike Smith is roaring at her. Maybe that's their secret!

Adam, a huge thank you!! hmb0725 is right, she obscures the competition completely!!:)

Hmm - interesting picture.  Odin, the leader of the old Norse gods, had a horse named Sleipner.  Sleipner, considered "the best horse among gods and men," had eight legs.  The picture shows Zenyatta with eight legs.  Coincidence?  Or, have the Mosses pulled a fast one by running a legendary horse-god in the Classic?

Adam, have I told you lately that you are awesome?  Thanks for the photo/wallpaper of Zenyatta as well as the links to Ernie's videos!  You rock!

How about questioning the BC officials regarding how they determined "all other jockeys" the winner of the jockey bet with this release below?

Leparoux wins Bill Shoemaker Award

Julien Leparoux rode three winners at the Breeders’ Cup World Championships on November 6-7 and was honored as the recipient of the seventh annual Bill Shoemaker Award.

The award, established in 2003, is given to the top jockey at the event. No other jockey this year rode multiple winners during the two-day World Championships at the Oak Tree meeting at Santa Anita Park.

Oh they will tell you, I'm not a smart man. They're right and I'll never trust them again with any type BC trick wager.

I'd also like to thank you for the wallpaper - I immediately put it on my desktop at work and at home!  My kids are offended I replaced their picture with Zen's! :)

13 Nov 2009 3:33 PM

Wow!  Awesome on the computer!  Thanks so much!

13 Nov 2009 10:23 PM

Nice pic. Now just needs a van and some fish.

15 Nov 2009 8:21 PM
