Only her first race would have had any reference to last year. She'll probably be weighted according to her races so far this year. That's how handicaps normally work.

You didn't answer the question! How much?

RA will not race in a G1 at a 1 1/4.

How should I know?

Based on the last two, it won't be all that much.

Why does it have to be 1-1/4? Why not 1-1/16?

1-1/4 is hardly Zenyatta's "favorite distance", as she has only run that far once in her career, and her connections keep aiming her at 1-1/8 all the time this year. There's a real nice 1-1/4 coming up at Hollywood called the Gold Cup, and they already publicly chicken chicken chicken out of that one, so it's not apparent they love that distance. If Zenyatta was any kind of horse, they'd show up even if RA was only going a mile.

Why? He's avoiding 1-1/4 races like the plague as it is.

I already told you he's studiously avoiding the Hollywood Gold Cup, right in his own back yard.

As far as 1-1/4 sex "restricted" to ladies on the dirt ... I have my doubts of there even being such races on the calendar anywhere. Turf, maybe. That's a boy's distance on dirt/poly, and a rare one at that. The defending BC Classic champ should be out there climbing those higher mountains, though.

Zenyatta can run 2 miles in the Melbourne Cup. Her highest BSF was at 1 1/4 (112).

There aren't a lot of 1 1/4 races. The Classic is and the derby is. A lot of grass races are. The Personal Ensign later this year is and I'd love to see Zenyatta try that. You won't see RA in that one.

why wouldnt rachel show up? is she distanced challenged? if she did i would personally give steve asmussen some bailing wire. that way he could wire rachel's bridle on so when zenyatta ran by the wind wouldn't rip the bridle right off her head.

Is this the same swoopdaddy who spent a lot of time reading the riot act about how people shouldn't bash either of these nice horses and just enjoy them, or did a mouse take over your computer?  laughing guy laughing guy laughing guy

Then, everything I write is merely an "observation", too, no matter how it's worded, and you don't need to worry your head clucking  about it anymore, ever. We understand each other.

a little touchy tonite. you spend the last 5 months calling the zenyatta camp chicken. how rachel is the hoty and live with it, but when somebody says something that hits close to home you curl up and get mad. like a cheap claimer at beaulh.  the truth hurts and it goes both ways.

Yes, you do seem to be a bit touchy, after being called out on your hypocrisy about "enjoy both great horses". As for me, I'm just having fun with the Z vs. RA stupidity, same as always. You clowns come with the RA bashing; I balance it with the the Z bashing. It is a ritual, and this it has been since the Z-tards started all this, what ... 9 months ago?

ROTFL! "Curl up." What a goof. I could care less what RA or her connections do. That seems to be your primary concern, though, as she's apparently the only measuring stick you have for the "great" Zenyatta. Well, of course she would be, what with Z  chicken chicken chicken out of all possible tests of "real" greatness.

The truth hurts you, maybe. Whatever small "truth" about RA might exist in anything any one of you jealous, bitter, still-living-in-the-past RA bashers have ever written is of no real concern to me.

just to be clear, if the defenders of Zenyatta are Z-tards, you are here by appointed the president of the RA-tards club. Fair enough?
