I caught the tail end of Zensational's morning bath at Del Mar Wednesday morning, as well as Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert talking about this very fast 3-year-old son of Unbridled's Song.
Baffert said Zensational is pointing for the Pat O'Brien Stakes at Del Mar on Sunday, Sept. 6.
Zensational was an impressive winner of the Bing Crosby Stakes on Aug. 8, his second consecutive win in a Grade 1 sprint. He won the Triple Bend Handicap at Hollywood Park July 5, his stakes debut. Owned by Zayat Stables, he has won 4 of 6 starts and $429,300.
