The NTRA failed with their attempted webcast of Zenyatta's 2010 debut and now the Daily Racing Form via drf.com has swung and missed at the 2nd pitch thrown as they also failed with Friday's attempted webcast of Zenyatta in the Apple Blossom.
You know the ole saying: Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Well this time not expecting much I had a backup plan in place-I fired up my computer browser on drf.com at the same time my TV was turned onto to my local OTB (Capital-OTB) Simulcast channel.
After attempting to see the webcast on drf.com and only getting a "Video feed not currently available" message I checked the blogosphere and Twitter verse, saw that it was just not me who could not get connected to the webcast and than I gave up, satisfied that at least I had the old familiar OTB simulcast video feed on my trustworthy Television.
This webcast thing is becoming laughable.
Who gets to try and swing at the 3rd pitch webcast when Zenyatta races next (hopefully at Belmont Park in June)? Maybe give bloodhorse.com a shot, or Thoroughbred Times or ....oh, just forget it!
