Mexican Standoff

Based on what I heard today, we won't be seeing a Zenyatta-Rachel Alexandra matchup anytime this year. Jackson all but discounted an appearance at the Breeders Cup championships at Santa Anita in November. Zenyatta's owners have stated that they are going to stay home in California for the rest of the campaign. What we have folks, is an 'ole Mexican Standoff. Jackson said Zenyatta will "have to come East" if she wants any part of Rachel. "She's a dirt horse" and "I'm not going to run her on plastic, we don't need to risk her," Jackson replying to questions on a potential matchup with the undefeated Zenyatta. Should be good fodder for the next few months.

Jackson stated potential future races could be the Coaching Club, Del Cap, Haskell, Alabama or Travers. The rest of the campaign appears to be under wraps and going the "one race at a time" route. Good news for Spa fans, looks like Calvin will be riding during the summer meet.
