Ok...for those of you who don't know...I love Zenyatta. I think she owns her competition even in her 'off' days, is fun to watch, and hands down a true beauty....but I don't think she can beat the Breeder's Cup Boys.
I'm sorry girl, I love ya, but I really hope your racing connections put you for the sure win in the Ladies' Classic. Not saying I would love to see her take on the boys, but now is not the time. This just reminds me a bit too much of Azeri. 2002 BC Distaff...Azeria kicks total ass...no questions asked...takes a break...starts a winning streak in 2003....takes on the guys in the BC Classic....performs decently...but loses...I want to say 6th? Anyway, she could have easily won against the gals...I know people want to prove something...but don't be dumb. Race your horse where they should be raced. Maybe it would just be my shabby, inexperienced owning skills...but I would go for the sure thing in the Breeder's Cup...especially this year...there are too many talented colts and horses in the Classic to risk it all.
But maybe that's just me.
Zenyatta...despite where you go...kick ass!(tothewireltd.com)
