I propose an alternate title to this: Horse Doesn't Know SHE Just Lost.

Zenyatta is still the best damn racemare to touch foot on a racetrack. She just ran out of room. Another yard and she would have had it.

She was the best in the race, but that's just racing luck. Good on Blame to get the win, he's a nice horse. (But he's no Zenyatta).

Glad she's retiring safe and sound and looking forward to watching her babies run in the years to come.

I feel so bad for her jockey Mike Smith though. He's a real class act.

ALSO: Goldikova (also a mare) accomplished a hat trick yesterday and made Breeders Cup history becoming the first horse to win three Breedres Cup races.

Hooray for the girls! They all did themselves proud.
