Genie in a Bottle

So a genie is released from the bottle and gives you three wishes for the Breeders' Cup. What are your three wishes?

Mine (aside from them all coming home safe) are below:

1. Zenyatta wins the Classic (hopefully at 4-1), sews up Horse of the Year and drives attendance, TV ratings and makes headlines across America.

2. No rain at Churchill Downs either day...the last two Derbys have been super soakers. Let's not make the handicapping any more difficult than it already is and have some good weather to boost the attendance figures upwards to 80,000 under the Twin Spires.

3. A superstar like Uncle Mo or Stay Thirsty emerges from the Juvie and gives us some Triple Crown hopes for 2011. I still think Lookin at Lucky with the right post on Derby day might have had a shot at it.

What say you blog reader?

To cash Life At Ten - Blame double after watching the Classic in person.

One giant wish. :-)

Would be some poetic justice if Looking At Lucky won the BC Classic.

As for Z's star potential: don't expect too much. The great mare hit the magic 16 in the Apple Blossom, and half a year later she still is less of a household name than Rachel Alexandra was after winning the Preakness. Judging from her google hits she's still largely an "internal buzz" - horse.

If one of the hyped East Coast 2-year-olds wins impressively, then they will definitely have people dreaming. However, looking at their trainers and bloodlines, I'd say we'd be lucky to have one or both of them even in the starting gate come the first Saturday in May.
