Get ready for Rachel Alexandra vs. Zenyatta trading cards.
Tourism officials in Hot Springs, Ark., say 50,000 trading cards of Rachel Alexandra and Zenyatta are being produced in the buildup to the greatly-anticipated showdown between star female horses at Oaklawn Park.
Steve Arrison, the CEO of the Hot Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau, says 25,000 cards for each horse are being printed Wednesday in Little Rock at a cost of $2,395.
The first public distribution will be Tuesday at the Visitor Center in Hot Springs. Arrison says the cards will be given away as long as supplies last.
Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra and unbeaten Zenyatta are set to run in the $5 million Apple Blossom at Oaklawn on April 9.
