You don't need to be a horse racing fan to make good use of a few
minutes on a busy TV Saturday watching the magnificent Zenyatta.
6-year-old mare, the darling of thoroughbred racing fans in California
— and many other places — will make her final start in California in
Saturday's $250,000 Lady's Secret Stakes at Hollywood Park. She won the
race in 2008 and 2009. ESPN will show the race at 7:15 p.m.
Zenyatta is undefeated in 18 career races, including last year's Breeders' Cup Classic.
The only knock on Zenyatta is that she's a synthetic-turf specialist and has run only twice outside California.
