    For Zenyatta, her defeat in the 2010 Breeders? Cup Classic will be remembered as an affirmation of her greatness. In victory after victory, she captured the heart. In her lone defeat, she captured the soul.

    i really wish i new more about racing in the US. seems like some super quality fillies have come out of there in the past few years.

    She SHOULD have won. You cant sit 12 lengths off the second last horse and win a Breeders Cup. Poor Mike Smith will have to live with that forever.....

    For all racing enthusiasts on here look on You Tube at Zenyattas antics before a race. So cute!!!
