Horse of the Year!!!

Well folks, despite having lost the Breeders Cup Classic, Zenyatta has finally been named Horse of the Year at the Eclipse Awards!!! We thought she deserved it in '08, we definitely thought she deserved it in '09, but finally, the voters got some sense in their heads and named her the 2010 Horse of the Year!!! She also won the Award for top older female (which she did win also in '08 and '09). Congrats to her, to owners Jerry and Ann Moss, to trainer John Shirreffs, and to all her other connections who did so much to make her such an amazing racehorse as well as to get her fans involved as much as possible with her career. We'll never forget Zenyatta; I will never forget standing in the Santa Anita grandstand cheering wildly when she won the BCC '09.

Next stop, breeding! I wonder to whom they will breed her, and what kind of foals she will turn out... :)

Should be more like "Horse of the Decade", or "Horse of the Last 50 Years". We won't see another like her for quite a while, I expect.
