Zenyatta, close but no cigar

Very exciting race to watch. Zenyatta had the habit of running last or deep in the pack then turning on the afterburners in the final stretch. The Breeders Cup race was pretty much the same as the others except maybe this time she took too long to make her move.Some people place her in the same category as Secretariat, I don't know about that but she will go down in history as one of the best. I'm a bit superstitious and I believe the intense media attention jinxed her. The last few horses that I can remember getting big media attention going into their last race, Smarty Jones, Barbaro and now Zenyatta all came up short when the pressure was on. Barbaro even broke his leg and had to be put down. But it was a great run for Zenny while it lasted. Check out the montage below and watch greatness in action.
