Zenyatta is a star no matter how she fares in the Breeders' Cup
Zenyatta, according to "60 Minutes," may be the greatest racehorse ever (*cough* Secretariat *cough*). Andy Beyer suggests that she isn't deserving of such lofty praise because of the competition she's faced in racing primarily on artificial surfaces.
Does it really matter, though, when the horse is a gorgeous, Guinness-swillin', race-winnin', camera-lovin' critter like the unbeaten 6-year-old mare who out-Dougies John Wall before she runs and will race for the last time Saturday in the Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs? (She's an 8-5 favorite and drew the No. 8 pole position.)
Will she win Saturday and finish her career 20-0 or will she be the equine version of the New England Patriots, coming up one win short of perfection?
