Churchill Downs

Churchill Downs, Cup this year Churchill Downs Breeders’ Classic will be the two main headliners of the century, and Zenyatta Goldikova. The two fillies are scheduled for Saturday’s race, and millions are waiting for the next fight of the couple to the end. To Goldikova, this is your chance to have a third consecutive victory in the Breeders’ Cup Mile race.

As Zenyatta, this would make his second victory in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Churchill Downs.

Breeders’ Cup “has been an illustrious career for many years, and this year is no different, with millions of enthusiastic horse race across the Atlantic to see the incredible U.S. filly Zenyatta, and be fabulous filly Goldikova in the UK head to head.

Godikova trainer, Freddie Head, said they will not be dragged into a conversation comparing the two fillies. Head, who has repeatedly asked to comment on the two horses, has only brought glory to both, saying: “It’s very different,” said Head.

“You can not compare. Is very different in Europe. In Europe has to compete with the colts all the time. Zenyatta has not been the same. She is a champion.” But again, what is Goldikova, a mare based in France.

Saturday will be one of the most watched horse race in a long time, and the two head-liners will face tough opposition, and the questions that many ask is how many foals Zenyatta rise against, still has not been executed against them, but once before this race.

Godikova has raced against colts, in eleven different races, doing very well, with 14 victories in twenty different starts. She has been brilliant in the United Kingdom and the United States. She has won 4 of 5 races this year alone.

As Zenyatta, his coach said the following. “She did well,” said trainer John Shirreffs reporters after Zenyatta – undefeated mare trying to repeat Breeders’ Cup Classic champion Sunday – had a gallop on the track at Churchill Downs, before a crowd of journalists, fans and owners Jerry and Ann Moss. “She seems very happy and really is on the right track.”

In the midst of a real treatment he has received since its arrival in the Breeders’ Cup this weekend, Zenyatta took to the track for the first time on Wednesday and has a passing grade from his coach and rider.

Despite the win last year’s Classic, Zenyatta’s first trip here was of great interest, given the doubts expressed by several skeptics who would do as well in a traditional dirt track instead of synthetic surfaces in which has often run. Churchill Downs track was rated as fast with a dry summer and fall, a forecast of light rain Wednesday is not expected to affect that.

“She’s amazing. No training could be better. She loves the land,” said Steve Willard, his regular exercise rider. “I met him two years ago, and I knew I was in Hot Springs. It leads outside. There is no trampoline effect, such as synthetic.”

Churchhill Downs will be a race to be seen by many, and seems to be a very exciting day to see the horse lovers. Both European and American journalists have been there for a week, and speculations are running high right now as to who the winner is.
