Zenyatta: Is She One of the Greatest Horses of All Time?
Zenyatta had an amazing career, there's no denying that. Her record is something that most owners can only dream of for their horses.
She came one race shy of finishing with an undefeated record and that's something we haven't seen in a long, long time in horse racing. However, there is one glaring blemish on her record. Zenyatta never competed in a single leg of the Triple Crown during her amazing run.
Those races feature the best of the best, and while Zenyatta won some Breeders Cup races and beat some great horses, the Triple Crown is always what turns horses into the stuff of legends. There would be no stories about Secretariat or Seabiscuit if they had the career that Zenyatta did.
While she had a great year, you could make the case that Zenyatta wasn't the horse of the year. With the horse missing out on the award in the past, I think this was more of a Lifetime Achievement Award for Zenyatta and her owners.
