Zenyatta goes for 18

Just a quick announcement that the great race mare, undefeated Zenyatta, tries for her eighteenth win tonight, August 7, 2010 in the Clement Hirsch Stakes at Del Mar racetrack in California. If she wins, she will be a three time winner of this race.

Post time is approximately 6:15 PM Pacific Time, so you can adjust that for wherever you live. It should be televised on TVG, which is a horseracing channel available on many cable and satellite systems.

We've written more about Zenyatta earlier. (You can use the search feature in the upper righthand corner to find out more about this great mare, now six years old.) Can she make it a perfect 18 for 18?

I'd love to see her in person, but instead, I'll be right in front of the television, screaming her on. Hope you can watch her, too!

TVG is now saying post time is 6:05pm Pacific Time. Don't want anyone to miss the race because of bad information. Tune in early to see the big mare do her dance in the paddock beforehand. Go Big Z!

ZENYATTA! You can watch the race on YouTube - just search for "Zenyatta 2010 Clement Hirsch". She is amazing. And her trainer posts lots of videos there, too. His YouTube username is jonshfs05.

She's the best racehorse in the country right now. Wow.

Agreed, Cleone. She is a thrill to watch, and is such a personable, impressive horse. Congratulations, Zenyatta, on winning eighteen races in a row! You are the queen!
