STATEMENT FROM OWNER JERRY MOSS REGARDING RACHEL ALEXANDRA NOT RUNNING IN THE APPLE BLOSSOM

ARCADIA, Calif. (March 14, 2010)—Jerry Moss, owner of Zenyatta, was reached by phone at his home in Beverly Hills and asked to comment on Jess Jackson’s announcement that Rachel Alexandra will not run as originally scheduled in the Gr. I Apple Blossom Handicap at Oaklawn Park on April 9.

JERRY MOSS: “We’re disappointed that we’re not going to be able to face each other in the Apple Blossom. Hopefully, we can meet down the line. We respect both Steve (Asmussen) and Mr. Jackson as horsemen and they’re going to do what’s right for their horse. That’s all anybody could ask for.

“We’ll go on to the Apple Blossom as planned.”
