Equine Idol ~ Season 3 ~ AUDITION [00:15]
I'm not sure if the judges read descriptions or not, but I will fill it out just in case. Why should I be idolized? I may not have the fanciest, most expensive horses out there, but I put all I have into them to make them all they can be. I work even harder to be all *I* can be! I have a passion that every good horseperson needs to succeed, and I work hard to get where I dream to go. This is the one sport that I live for...honestly, I can get depressed if I go too long without horses! We bought my most recent horse (the dark bay in the video) out of a kill pen for $450, and although she is one of the most difficult horses I have ever ridden, I push through it and give her everything I've got. She's improving everyday, and she's going to go far. That little pony that is in most of the video is my everything, and we've worked so hard together. We aim to prove that both Appies and "shorties" can be amazing show horses, and our dream is beginning to come true. I'm not perfect...never have been, never will be...I make mistakes, I have lots to work on in my eq...I get nervous, and I get frustrated. But I have this little thing called determination (some call it being stubborn!), and no matter how bad things get, my horses give me what I need to push through it. I love my horses to death, and would do just about anything for them. They're my life. Horses are my passion, and although I've always been the "underdog", I give it all I've got and hope to be an inspiration to those ...

This is Zenyatta. [02:03]
Watch in HD!!! Anyone else watch Breeders Cup 2010? Hoping so, otherwise you're going to be lost XD So, with BC Classic presumably Zenyatta's last race, I wanted to do a wee special video (wee, as in it sucks with its quick creation) of her, being a huge fan and all. In case you haven't already see, heard, or otherwise found out yet about the results of the Classic yesterday: Zenyatta placed 2nd by a nose behind Blame. My thoughts: Zenyatta, in all technicality and sentimental purposes, and with the rate at which she was slaughtering her way through Blame's lead, won the BC Classic 2010. She's more or less a victim of racing luck, what with the heafty traffic she had to dodge through to be able to make her run. If you noticed, she passed Blame about 2 strides after the finish line. Had the wire been two strides further, the results of the race would be completely reversed. Nonetheless, this race does not defile her in any manner. She's still Zenyatta, she still has her record setting win-streak under her belt, and she's still a moose. No matter what anyone attempts to say about this horse, she has most certainly earned her place among the greats. __________________________ Rant over! ^^ And now I must go do something rather importante! See you allllllllllllllllllllllllll (tomorrow)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ~.Stretchy.~ xoxo

Zenyatta almost beats Blame and the boys 2010 Breeders Cup - Final Stretch - loses by a head [00:20]
Put the blame on Blame for breaking Zenyatta's magnificent winning streak -- and a lot of hearts, too. Jockey Mike Smith wept. Owners Jerry and Ann Moss stood in stunned silence. Trainer John Shirreffs trudged slowly back to the barn, hands in his pockets. Nineteen times the people behind Zenyatta led horse racing's superstar to the track. Nineteen times they'd celebrated with her in the winner's circle. [+] EnlargeZenyatta AP Photo/David J. PhillipJockey Mike Smith blamed himself after the race for Zenyatta's first loss, by a head to Blame. Not this time. Blame beat Zenyatta by a head in a thrilling finish at the Breeders' Cup Classic on Saturday night, handing the 6-year-old mare her first defeat. Zenyatta threaded her way through traffic from last place while the crowd of 72739 urged her on as she unleashed a monstrous closing kick under the lights at Churchill Downs. It was so close, a matter of inches, the result had to be resolved by a photo -- a picture that saddened not only Zenyatta's owners and trainer but millions of fans around the world. It was so close, Ann Moss said she was hoping her horse had "stuck her tongue out" at the finish. Smith blamed himself for the loss. He walked off the track with his head down, dirt stuck to his face. "It was my fault," he said, sobbing. "She should've won."

2001 Wood Memorial Stakes - Monarchos -vs- Congaree [01:53]
The phone call Bob McNair received after Congaree muscled his way to victory in the Wood Memorial yesterday said it all: it was from Dom Capers, who will coach McNair's Houston Texans when the expansion franchise makes its National Football League debut in 2002. ''This is Coach Capers,'' McNair said as he covered the cell phone. ''He wants us to draft a running back as big and fast as Congaree.'' Congaree, a son of Arazi, looked like a punishing runner in dashing off with a two-and-three-quarter-length victory over Monarchos, the colt supposed to be the best in the East. Congaree is also sending Bob Baffert to the Kentucky Derby as the trainer most likely to succeed. With Millennium Wind upsetting a very tough field in the Blue Grass Stakes yesterday and with the favored Balto Star splashing in gate-to-wire fashion in the mud in the Arkansas Derby, Baffert, who owns two previous Derby victories, may be holding the surest hand May 5 at Churchill Downs. He already has the pre-Derby favorite in his barn in Point Given, a nearly six-length winner in the Santa Anita Derby last week. Now Baffert has a colt that made vanquishing stakes company in his first try and only fourth lifetime race look easy. ''He has as much talent as Point Given,'' Baffert said. ''Now it's a matter of who wants it more.'' As soon as the strapping chestnut burst from the gate at Aqueduct in the mile and one-eighth race, it was clear that Monarchos, the Florida Derby winner, was in for a test. Congaree's ...
