Blame it on? Zenyatta’s nose!

My heart is still pounding. My eyes moist with sorrow. Today’s Breeder’s Cup Classic, and what could be Zenyatta’s final race was incredible. Trevor Denman called him behind by 18 lengths, but you never thought she’d be out. Then they hit the turn, and jockey Mike Smith made his move. One by one, Zenyatta started passing horses and the stretch was exhilarating. I didn’t even know who she was trying to catch. I just watched her climb up to the front to be within yards of Blame.

Then, everyone let out a huge sigh. The race was over. No more whipping. No more riding all out. Zenyatta’s streak was over. But she showed the world, just because you’re down and out and way behind, never give up. She may have lost by a nose, but she won the hearts of America. Hopefully everyone recognizes that she’s a classy winner, without trying to pass Blame, sotospeak.
