The 2010 Breeders Cup had a thrill a minute. The high points among many: Goldikova’s three-peat in the Mile, and Uncle Mo’s domination of the Juvenile. The thrill of a lifetime: Zenyatta roaring from the back of the huge pack and lunging toward the finish line like a freight train on a deadline. Footnote in history: Blame got to the line first, but all eyes were on her as she covered more ground in a shorter amount of time than any of us believed a horse could or probably even should.
Yes, it was the Breeders Cup that will never be forgotten; who would ever want to forget the huge crowd that cheered for the horse that came in second? She’ll be first in their hearts and memories long after they forget the name of the horse who won.
