It Looks Like You Just Got Yourself a new Favorite Racehorse

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

Sorry this is in French, but there isn't a whole lot I could do about it.

Above is Goldikova, the Euro equivalent of Rachel Alexandra or Zenyatta, only better*. Her 2010 season got off to a perfect start with a 1/2 victory in the Grade 1- Prix D'ispahan at Longchamp (further reading can be had here). Along with Zenyatta, it's great to see a champion horse racing well into horsey adulthood at age 5. Any European horse that is 2 for 2 in Breeders Cup races, and is still racing automatically cracks my top 5 favorite European horses of all time. Great story any way you slice it.

Oh, but she isn't the horse I was implying will be your new favorite. Our new favorite horse was actually the German horse that finished third in that race. His name is Wiener Walzer.

Here he is winning the 2009 German Galop Derby. Start listening at the 2:02 mark. Stop giggling probably never.

* denotes- it makes for a great horse racing debate, but what is not debatable is that she is a total monster.

That's how I roll.
