Another Hottie HoTY

With all this talk about art of late, I forgot to mention that the winner of the 2011 Eclipse Award for Horse of the Year, announced this past Monday, is Havre de Grace, seen above winning the Woodward Stakes at Saratoga this past September. The girls have now won HoTY honors for three years running now, with Zenyatta winning in 2010 and Rachel Alexandra in 2009.

Havre de Grace is a nice horse for sure, but she seemed like at odd choice to me for best actress. But then when I really thought about it, I couldn't think of a logical candidate to replace her - it just wasn't a superstar year.
