Its on ESPN. I guess if she wins she will be undefeated for her entire career.

I dont think she ever ran in one of the triple crown races though.

No, she didn't-she matured pretty late. She's a giant.

Saw somewhere she has never won on anything that wasn't a synthetic dirt/turf.

Um...Not even into the first turn and Zenyatta is WAY BEHIND everyone else. No way she wins this.

Holy shit man, I am wondering why the Jockey started the Jockey so far back. I guess thats her style. That was an exciting race.

It looked like the Blame horse sped up in the last 10 yards, or else Zenyatta would have won.

Watch any of her races-she's always dead last, and seems to know where the finish line is to get up for the win.

I didn't realize that or else I wouldn't have said anything.

I'm not a huge fan of horse racing really.

Nice try by Zenyatta. Why do they allow the horse to fall all the way behind. She spent some energy moving through a maze of horses.

Is this some sort of horse psychology?

They say all of her races were like this one...she loves to come from way back but this time she ran into a great horse who just wouldn't let her win.

She will now retire & make babies for lots of $$$$$.

Will they harvest her eggs and do embryo transplants like prize cows?

All Thoroughbreds are registered through the Jockey Club, which has very strict rules about breeding. If they did that, the resulting horse would not be able to be registered through the JC, and thus not able to race.
