I did a couple of rather melancholy posts about the late, lamented Hollywood Park, but this is a memory of a happier time — Zenyatta’s record-setting win the 2010 Vanity Handicap. You can watch the race, which was voted one of the top moments in the history of the track, and it was a thriller. Or you can skip to the real reason I’m posting it — at 3:20, that chick in the bright pink top in the very middle of your picture? Yeah, that’s me. Wiping my eyes, because once again, my beloved Zenny moved me to tears. Yes, that’s right…there I am on YouTube forever, fangirling a horse.
So be it.
