That was a strong performance and I look for this colt to do big things this year.
The filly Fan Dii Na was really worked up before the race, and that may have diminished her ability to accelerate in the stretch. Wonder if she'll be back with her own gender next out.

She's supposed to run in the Oaks next. 8-)

Ziconic is even money in the 6th at Santa Anita. :shock:
The power of sentiment, I guess. I want the colt to win, but I don't think I'd wager my money on him...unless it's just to have a souvenir ticket?

Third. He broke as slowly as an Irish Cob and was SOOOO far back that the camera had a hard time keeping him in frame.
He made a nice, long sustained run to pass horses and get even with most of the field in the stretch, but just couldn't find enough kick to get past the front two. Close, but no maiden-breaking cigar.
Someone needs to explain to the colt that his legs aren't as long as his mom's. This running style just doesn't work for him. :roll:

They really need to get him out of the gate faster. They're leaving him with way too much ground to make up at the end.

Maybe John needs to bring in Wesley Ward to give the colt a clinic on how to break sharply? :lol:

Thought he had a good rhythm and a chance - gonna wait for the head on, but was awfully wide and seemed to quit with a little contact with the inside horse (?) - also seemed to resent the whip, wonder if they change jockeys, go back to dirt or just retire him - I would assume the Mosses would at least support both of them with their own mares to give them a chance (I don't see them gelding them without trying them at stud first).

Between the two Zen sons, Ziconic seems the more talented, and to have a nice, balanced...though compact...conformation. With his pedigree, I could see a few breeders taking a chance on Zic....if the fee is very reasonable.

3rd beaten by 1/2 length after his usual slow start, at least Ziconic's bringing home checks. For a brief moment there in the stretch, I thought he might get there. Oh well, he sure is a looker.

That horse wouldn't break fast if he had an electric prod on both haunches. :roll:

Look who's back on the work-tab, California Chrome's little sis, apparently in Kristin Mulhall's barn now.

I'm intrigued that she's running back on turf when she broke her maiden easily on dirt. I'm going to toss her last race (also on dirt), since she had a stupid trip and was DQed for interference.
