Larry Zap caught up with hall of famer jockey Mike Smith in the paddock at Hollywood Park the day after Zenyatta won her 11th in a row.
Mike mentions a wine project he's involved in with Alex Solis and other investors -- check out the web site Smith mentions here.
Mike Smith also answers Zap's hypothetical question about strategy on a future match-up between two of Thoroughbred racing's biggest names... Smith rides Eclipse winner Zenyatta and is expected to take on classic winning and future Eclipse winner Rachel Alexandra and jockey Calvin Borel.
This day, Smith rode Dish the Dirt for trainer Peter Eurton to a nice 2nd against undefeated filly Moon de French.
Once again, nicely narrated by Larry Zap... Enjoy!
