That's right folks...Zenyatta won Horse of the Year. Isn't that incredible??!! Zenyatta was runner-up for Horse of the Year in 2008 & 2009. I am thrilled she finally won this year! She's one of the best fillies we've ever seen before. I finally got the opportunity to watch her run last November at Churchhill Downs in the Breeders Cup Classic. My friend, Paige, got us the tickets...there was no way we were going to miss her last run before retirement. We waited in line for over 2 hours just to get close to her.
Before last November Zenyatta's recorded was 19-0. She was adored by many and everyone in the horse industry was there to see her. However, she lost the Breeder's Cup Classic to Blame. Even though she didn't win the race, she has won everyone's heart. Including mine. <3
She's a remarkable lady and it's amazing what she has done for the Thoroughbred industry. You don't see a horse like her everyday. In 2005, her owners (Jerry and Ann Moss) bought her for $60,000, and she has easily won them their money back and beyond. She won 13 Grade 1 stakes races and 5 of those are from last year alone.
Zenyatta is now in KY at Land's End farm where she is expected to start breeding soon.
