Are they sure she didn't walk on water too. I know it's not the horse's fault, but it's getting sickening how much this horse is constantly getting hyped in the news everyday. Constant comments on how she's in a league of her own and would destroy Zenyatta, like she's a claimer or something. Even in one article I recently read, being compared to Ruffian with the author saying she may even surpass Ruffian. This horse isn't immortal. She'll be beaten again, probably in the Haskell. Not a good habit for fillies, even great ones to go picking on the boys to often. As for her beating Zenyatta, dirt or synthetic track I'll take Zenyatta at the betting window anytime. I don't care if it's the lead pony that does it, I hope she gets hammered in the Haskell just to shut everyone up for awhile about how great she is. She's a good horse, but there's better horses in America, male and female than her. She won't go to race Zenyatta in the Breeders Cup but Zenyatta's avoiding her because she won't go to the east coast and race her on dirt in her own yard. The Breeders Cup races are there to resolve issues like this. The track it's ran on is luck of the draw for the horse. Don't claim your horse is HOY if you won't go race the best at the end of the year.
