A Sneak Peak at Life is Sweet - Favored in Sunday's La Canada Stakes

Trainer John Shirreffs videotapes "As the Shedrow Turns."

This is too cool -- a trainer who creates and posts videos of his horses on Youtube! John Shirreffs has his own Youtube channel, and posts regular updates on his horses in training.

In this video clip, you get a nice look at Life Is Sweet, as well as Zenyatta and others, filmed Tuesday morning at Hollywood Park.

Life Is Sweet was a dominant winner of the El Encino Stakes at 1-1/16 miles on Jan. 18. A victory on Sunday would give her wins in two of the three legs of Santa Anita's La Canada Series -- the female counterpart to the traditional Strub Series. The first leg, the La Brea Handicap at 7 furlongs on Dec. 27, was captured by Indian Blessing.

Owned by Martin and Pam Wygod, Life Is Sweet will carry high weight of 123 pounds in the La Canada.

So glad you posted this. I think his youtube channel is actually more interesting than Jockeys, because it's about the horses and their life behind the scenes.
