Judgment Day

To Z or not to Z that is the question. 19 times she has run, and 19 times she has crossed the wire first. Whether you think that she is the greatest of all-time or not, matters little today. The mighty Zenyatta is on the precipice of history. To be perfect in 20 starts over four seasons of racing is incredible enough, but if she wins the Breeders’ Cup Classic for the second straight year, she would be alone in an uncharted territory of racing history. The world will be watching, as everyone wants to know if her furious rally will get the job done one last epic time. Number 20 looks to present the greatest challenge yet.

Standing in her way is a full field of excellent males ready to knock the Queen off her throne. Blame, Quality Road, and Looking at Lucky have each proven special enough to be no surprise if they would prove successful in their own quest for racing immortality. Zenyatta is already great, she is already a legend. Today is the day she can takes things to a different level. In order for greatness to leave all doubts behind, it needs to be tested in an ultimate manner. Today, Zenyatta has her chance. The world is in her corner.

Just a few more hours, I sit here already trembling as I wait for the most historic race to take place. Whether she wins or looses she is still my champion, my best friend.
