I think this article is spot on. I think Careless Jewel, Music Note, and some of the Euro contenders that are sure to come will be more than enough challenge for Zenyatta. I love this horse. One of my all time favorite's, but she's not likely to beat the males that will run in the Classic. She'll be hard pressed, and spent just to hit the board. Quite frankly, Careless Jewel and her front running speed will provide all the test Zenyatta needs if she, C.J., run's to form. This will be the best group, by far, of fillies that Zenyatta has faced since she beat Ginger Punch at Oaklawn in 2008. I'd rather see her go out with a good chance of being 14-0 against a very reputable group of fillies than take a chance of being out of the money by trying to defeat the best males in the world, not just the U.S.
