Zenyatta is a pretty special horse.
We got to see her run at Santa Anita last Saturday. She’s the classic come from off the pace horse. She seemed to win easily though she doesn’t seem to need to dominate the field the way RA does. A couple of things we loved about Zenyatta on Saturday: the way she was hoof tapping before and after the race, and the way her ears were up for at least the last quarter mile.
