Zenyatta, Horse Racing Legend

I went to Hollywood Park yesterday to see Zenyatta run.  She's the six year old mare who's taken the racing world by storm after winning an unbelievable 19 out of 19 races.

Above is one my own photos of her just before she ran a breath-taking race, gave us all heart attacks, then won the Lady's Secret Stakes 2010.  Now that she's won it three times, they plan to name the race after her.  She's a huge, elegant, cocky creature, full of personality and uncanny athletic ability.

If you've never heard of her or watched one of her races online, do yourself a favor and watch her run in the video below.  This is the Breeder's Classic from last year, where she beats all the best horses in the country in her usual edge-of-your-seat fashion.

Horserace can also teach the game by offering interactive handicapping lessons. Rather than fret over a steep learning curve, racing needs to teach handicapping skills using all the incredible tools of the internet.
