Zebra Racing!


Hold onto your hats! These zebras live up to their reputation of being difficult rides. The biggest challenge is getting at least ONE of them to cross the finish line! Want to see more exotic racing? Visit Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota. In the meantime, I’ll leave the zebra racing to the professionals.

  1. I was driving in Vermont two years ago and looked up to see a Zebra in a pasture! Turns out someone had always wanted one and had it shipped from a zebra farm. All reports were that you had to be mighty careful about that zebra because it could be nasty.

  2. One of my co-workers used to work at the National Zoo in DC. He said the zebras were ‘bastards’ to handle.
    One thing he did mention, though…that once they turned the radio off in the zebras sheds, they were much more amenable, or at least less willing to bite.
    I’ve found that to be true with horses, too. Everyone seems to think horses want to hear music. To me, I think horses want to hear any critter creeping up on the end in the dark, even if they’re safe in a barn. Once I convinced the barnlord to shut off the radio ‘just for a few days’, the hot heads, the ‘high strungs’ in the barn calmed right down.
