What a THRILL! I am so deeply touched and honored! John Nerud, who is a RACING LEGEND, made some absolutely glowing comments about ME in his YouTube pieces called LASTING IMPRESSIONS.
Please enjoy his interviews!

Mr. Nerud’s direct quote about ME is that he feels Zenyatta is “equal or better than any mare I have EVER SEEN”. You have no idea how wonderful this makes me feel.
He complimented ME on what I did for our sport…and for Breeders’ Cup! I GRACIOUSLY want to thank him for his kind words! I will cherish them and remember them FOREVER!
To have one’s work respected and regarded in this manner is so significant and meaningful! I do believe establishing and accomplishing goals that you can be proud of is very important in one’s life. Then, to have one’s peers respect your work, as Mr. Nerud did mine, is such an HONOR!
YIPPEE! I really want to go out and celebrate this moment! I’m off to run a few laps in the paddock with my friends. Then I think I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon DANCING WITH SHEER JOY!
Hugs to All~
P.S. For all of my friends, Steve Haskin wrote a great piece in THE BLOODHORSE about Mr. Nerud and his visit to the National Museum of Racing on October 24, 2010. Please read it. Also, it is very special to note that Mr. Nerud just celebrated his 98th birthday. Happy Birthday, Mr. Nerud!
