Del Mar has an app. You can view the replays soon after the race.

thanks firehorse, for the tip on the tvg classic zenyatta Hirsch show - I have missed it - will be on the lookout for it now for sure - she was so much fun to watch - it will bring back memories - I still miss seeing her run... and putting on her prerace show!

Unfortunately, once again, the circumstance lead to no pomp.

Had a conversation with John Shirreffs this morning. Ziconic is turned out for some time off. He also told me he'll be getting the 2017 Zenyatta filly by Medaglia d'Oro. Been a tough run for Zenyatta, especially after she lost her Into Mischief foal this season.

Shirreffs on Ziconic's future, specifically:
“If he comes back and still wants to be a racehorse, we’ll think about another year and hopefully send him out a winner."

Oh yuck, why send her to him? He hasn't had a smashing record with the first two.

If she were mine I would send her to Steve Asmussen.

I understand loyalty, and I do like Shireffs don't get me wrong but at this point I'm wondering if a different trainer with a different approach wouldn't be better for Ziconic, nevermind the Medaglia d'Oro, I was hoping they'd try someone else. Someone who isn't going to try and train her like her mother, but rather utilise whatever natural talents she has.

He needs to be retired and be retrained like Coz.

I really don’t think either of them are/were talented, not Shirreffs fault.
