On a November afternoon, one of the more shocking losses in horse racing history went down at the Breeder's Cup.

Zenyatta, a horse that gained a big following for the pre-race dance moves that would have made Michael Jackson jealous.

She was a heavy favorite to win; she wasn't supposed to lose, not today. Unfortunately, history has to be made at some point.

After starting the race dead last, she finally decided to get herself in the race and almost made one of the biggest comebacks in racing history.

She came down the stretch but came up just short, actually by a nose, of pulling off the win. A horse by the name of "Blame" picked up the upset and very unexpected win.

There have been some big losses in this sport's history. Here are the 10 most famous horses to lose a race.
