At the End of the 00's


The best racehorse of the decade that ends tomorrow was neither Rachel Alexandra nor Zenyatta. You can click HERE to find out my selection for the champions among the champions of the 2000's and HERE for a tip o' the hat to the best of the decade's non-champions.

My thanks go out to the many posters who responded to my request for help with this project in the previous post. I appreciate the time and thought that so many of you put into your comments.

--You can try to close out the decade on a high note at Aqueduct tomorrow, where there's a mandatory year-end payout of the pick-6, with a baby carryover of $24k already in the pot. The penultimate leg is the 13-furlong Gallant Fox Handicap, which drew a full field of 12.
