Zenyatta 'Definitely' Leaning Toward Classic

Trainer John Shirreffs said on a national teleconference Oct. 28 that the first preference for Zenyatta is the Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) as long as she works well this Saturday at Hollywood Park and appears to be peaking for the race. Read More

If this article from Bloodhorse magazine is accurate, it's nice to see the connection's of Zenyatta finally realize that this is it, this is her time to shine. Moss seems to think that winning the Classic could possibly garner HOY nomination's. That is doubtful, as HOY is already going to go to Rachael Alexandra. An awful big honor for a filly that's beaten sub-par males 3 times and the same old fillies, like Zenyatta, the other five. I look at it from this perspective, Rachael Alexandra is 8-0 this year, Zenyatta is 13-0 forever. A 13-0 record or even an 8-0 record is very difficult to accomplish in any era of racing. Usually the law of averages catches up to you first. But should Zenyatta win the Breeders Cup Classic, and I know that's a big if, she will have in 1 race beaten a field of males that's 10x fold more impressive than any male field that R.A. has ever, or will ever race. Tell me when R.A. will ever race Rip Van Winkle, Gio Ponti, Summer Bird, Quality Road, Einstein and possibly even Mastercraftsman in the same race. She's not likely to ever even race 2 of these horses in the same race. If Zenyatta beat's this field of males, and retires 14-0, it would be absolutely criminal, imo, not to give her at the very least co-HOY.
