A lingering storm
As winter trudges on into February, horse racing slowly gets back into the swing of things. More topnotch races start showing up on the calendar, last year's returning champions start prepping for their comebacks, and breeding sheds prepare to open for another season.This year, even racing fans who normally couldn't care less about the breeding aspect of the game will probably pay attention. That is because two of the sport's leading ladies, 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra and 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta, are becoming moms.
