Welcome 'Zapper Fans!!
Welcome to Thoroughbred Greats homage to the recently inducted Hall Of Fame Thoroughbred racehorse, Ghostzapper. Ghostzapper was a brilliantly fast horse who annihilated his competition at all distances. Early in his career he was seen as strictly a sprinter, but proved his doubters wrong when he raced many times at distance routes. He was owned by Frank Stronach, trained by Robert Frankel and ridden by jockey Javier Castellano.
Few horses have devastated their opponents in so many ways, at so many distances, and in such fast times.--Steve Haskin
