The race for Horse of the Year is now heating up and could come down to the Breeders' Cup Classic in November.
Ghostzapper was a brilliantly fast horse who won the Breeders' Cup Classic. And he won't get my Hall of Fame vote.
When Sheldon Finkelstein qualified for the Jan. 27-28 NHC in mid-July his goal wasn't to win the $2 million contest but to live long enough to compete in it.
The idea of bringing together a bunch of claiming horses and having them meet on the same card always had obvious shortcomings.
It keeps coming back to Havre de Grace. Flawed or not, she is the Horse of the Year.

Now 6, Tizway didn't really get good until this year, but when he hit his peak he was terrific.
This was unquestionably the best race of Zenyatta's career. Even in defeat, she proved a tremendous amount.
Just about everyone will be rooting for Zenyatta to pull this off. Will she?

It's time for Jerry Moss and Jess Jackson to get together and work out a viable plan that will bring Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra together and do it right now.
The divisive debate over Horse of the Year honors is not entirely about Rachel Alexandra versus Zenyatta, who the better horse is, or East versus West.
There will not, of course, be two Horses of the Year or any sharing of the award. There can be only one, and that one is Rachel Alexandra.
