When it comes to describing young Thoroughbreds who flash potential in the sales ring or on the track, the expression "She (or He) could be any kind," is often heard.
Then there is 8-year-old sprinter C Z Rocket. He has been all kinds.
C Z Rocket will look to add another chapter this year with a start in the Pat O'Brien Stakes (G2) Aug. 27 at Del Mar being a key test to determine if a third straight Breeders' Cup start is in the cards. "He's doing great," said trainer Peter Miller. "Honestly, I wish we hadn't drawn the rail (in the Pat O'Brien) but it's always fun when you can work with these horses that keep coming back year after year.
He's 8-years-old but he doesn't know that. He still thinks he's young."
