All Good Things

I've been saying all year that Blame was the one to beat, and if he and Zenyatta hooked up, it would go to whichever horse could get the better trip.  Blame had the perfect trip, and Zenyatta had a horrible one-- and only missed by inches.  I will say, hands down, without a doubt, after watching what I saw unfold on that track yesterday:

Zenyatta is the greatest race horse of this age.

I am so grateful and awed to have been able to see her run in person, in what may have been her greatest race of her career.   Even in defeat, she showed the heart of a champion, and laid that heart out on the track for all the world to see.  You can't take anything away from her, and those that try are only sour that she was able to prove her naysayers wrong.

Blame may have won the Classic, but there's no doubt who the better horse was, in this onlooker's opinion.

Indeed; the whole racing world seems to have lost some of its sparkle now that she's left the stage.

I agree. It just sucks that most people see things in terms of WIN or LOSE. :(
