Breeder's Cup  
omg. I'm like almost in tears I'm so excited right now. I can't believe I'm finally gonna get to watch Zenyatta race. This is a mare like no other. I think I'd be physically shaking if I was there to watch her in person. God I want her to win. It would be so amazing to see her retire undefeated.

Will edit with my thoughts after the race.

ETA: I seriously bawled over the end. So heartbreaking. One more stride would have done it.

I feel so bad for Mike... He's blaming himself right now :(
She's still a great mare and frankly I think she deserves Horse of the Year over Blame. I've never heard of him before this...

Glad for Goldikova though!

omg ikr, I cried more for him than for her. If a horse had moved over for him one stride earlier, she would have had it. Not his fault; that's the risk you take with a late closer. Not to mention how uncommon it is for a mare to take down the boys in the BC Classic.

I think she deserves horse of the year too. If she would have gotten the title for coming in 1st, then I think she should get it for coming in 2nd. Everyone thought a win would just seal the deal on HOTY, she already seemed to be the favourite for it. She deserved it before that race was even run and a close like that was still pretty phenomenal. I mean, how many mares can be in dead last up to the stretch and then move all the way to second, by only a nose, in a field of boys?
