Horse Racing Worse Off Than BCS Mess - Horse Racing Betting

1/21/10 in Horse Racing

It is too bad the folks who run the BCS dont run Horse Racing Betting too. For as ridiculous a way it is that the BCS goes about crowning a so-called best college football team in the land -- an arranged marriage, I call it -- it would be an upgrade for how the monarchs in the sport of kings go about naming their best horse. This year, especially, they looked like dunces instead.

To be sure, Horse Racing chose the three-year-old filly Rachel Alexandra (pictured) on Monday night in Beverly Hills as the 2009 Horse of the Year at its Eclipse Awards, which are a sort of Oscars handout for the horse racing game. She etched herself into the public psyche last season with a win in the Preakness, the second leg of the Triple Crown, against a field full of boys with that crazy Calvin Borel in her saddle. She won her other seven starts last season, including two more against nothing but boys, to finish 8-0.

With such a stellar record, she appeared impossible to argue against -- unless you were the handlers of another female, a five-year-old mare named Zenyatta. Horse Racing Betting
