Oaklawn: Zenyatta schooling session


Zenyatta, the undefeated champion who is in town to run Friday in the Grade 1, $500,000 Apple Blossom, had an infield schooling session late Thursday morning. She 'danced' for the public on hand to watch her circle the area, then continued the animation back to the barn to shouts of appreciation from fans on the apron. 

When the weather is agreeable, stakes starters at Oaklawn are saddled in the indoor paddock then led to the infield for riders-up. The post for the Apple Blossom on Friday is 6:25 p.m. Central.

The field from the rail with riders is: Be Fair, Calvin Borel; Taptam, Cliff Berry; War Echo, Shaun Bridgmohan; Zenyatta, Mike Smith; Just Jenda, Terry Thompson.
