OK, you’ve seen Rachel Alexandra destroy members of her own 3-year-old filly class, watched her beat the 3-year-old boys and older males while attracting all sorts of attention to the sport .
You’ve also watched Zenyatta, unbeaten in her career, turn in the greatest moment in Breeders’ Cup history by becoming the first female to win the Classic. Zenyatta WAS the 2009 Breeders’ Cup, and her thrilling, emotional victory will be etched in the memories of all those who were there to witness it in person forever.
Rachel, 8-0 in 2009; Zenyatta, 5-0. Both brought tremendous exposure to a sport that badly needed it. Here’s your shot. Weigh in.
