Z Is For Zenyatta


I must confess that I have been waiting since
last August to use these photos.


The name Zenyatta
caught my attention when we were visiting Santa Anita Park in California
last summer.  


Santa Anita Park is located not far from my home town
of Pasadena.  No racing that day.  Found a 'Z' instead :).

Participating in ABC Wednesday

Having a long weekend...!  Back on Monday :).

I can see why you were waiting to use these shots for Z. They are perfect. Beautiful horse at least the statue of the horse make it look beautiful and strong. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

A lovely Zed (or Zee!)

Looks like something you'd find here in Ocala, the "horse capital of the world!" :) We have a lot of horses and a lot of horse statues!

This is a beautifully configured creation!

The sculpture is magnificent, I see things I plan to use for letters and then seem to loose those ideas. Great patience waiting for Z.

You know I love Santa Anita Park! I've never been to the races, just the breakfast cafe. I don't think I'd like horse racing, but I love to watch the horses work out in the morning.

Thanks Leslie.

Petrea - It was because of your suggestion that we went to Santa Anita Park. I would love to do breakfast and watch the horses. I think you would enjoy lunch and an afternoon at the races...it is quite exciting :). More so if Camelot were running!!!!!
