Wow Wow Wow! Zenyatta is still undefeated! Simply amazing! Although, I wish she wouldn't scare us like that!
For those of you who watched, didn't you worry for a little bit that maybe Switch had her? Ack! But I should not lack confidence in this mare! She always gets the job done! I loved it when Jerry asked Mike as he passed whether Mike felt he had that race, and Mike just grinned and nodded with enthusiasm! What an amazing team!
Also, Wow! Look a that little filly! Switch is going to be something to watch! Now having taken down Blind Luck and giving Zenyatta a wonderful show of heart and grit, she will surely make a ruckus at the Breeder's Cup! Good luck to you Switch!
As for the Breeder's Cup...Good luck in the Classic Zenyatta! I have absolutely NO doubts that she can win this race! But if it is true that she has never given a full 100%, I think she is going to need to give it that day. It's going to be a tough field after a long travel on the dirt. But again, I don't think it's out of her reach in the slightest!
As my poll shows, I think Zenyatta should and will be Horse of the Year regardless. And I don't want to hear it from haters about how you can't be Horse of the Year just by beating a bunch of mares and 'weak' horses on synthetics. She is beating the best that is out there right now. What was the number they said yesterday? 60 some horses have been beaten by Zenyatta at least once? That's quite a few. If she could just add a few more to her list, she's got HOY locked in, but I think she should anyway.
Well Zenyatta, make this next race bittersweet! Bitter because it will be your last, but oh so sweet because you wipe the dirt with those boys! Good luck! Hope she forever stays healthy and strong!
