Remember last year when I made a post about Zenyatta and the Breeders’ Cup Classic? This was the come-from-behind victory that had me screaming and my five month old crying as a result. Before the race, everyone thought her owners were crazy for racing her in the main race instead of the Ladies’ Classic. Well, this horse was considered slightly “over the hill” a year ago, but she’s continued racing and she is still undefeated. 19-0 heading into the Breeders’ Cup Classic this weekend (the wiki page is inaccurate, as it still says 14-0). If she wins the Breeders Cup two years in a row and goes to 20-0, she will easily be one of the top 5 race horses of all time.

I am so excited for this! I love it when there is a good mare or filly. Horse racing is the ultimate hurry up and wait event, but for some reason I don’t mind the pomp and circumstance. I just leave it on the tv for hours leading up to the race.

For more information on what is probably the premier horse racing event worldwide (November 5&6, 2010), one may visit the official website.
