Zenyatta earned the honors last Saturday. Rachel ducked the biggest opportunity of her career or maybe she just avoided the obvoius, A LOSS TO THE CHAMPION. Her connections will have to wait for a much easier opportunity to come along.

Zenyatta was scratched on the same surface, same day that Rachel anhilated her peers. Zenyatta has handled with kid gloves this year, her times are slower compared to last year and she had one big race. Even the tv viewership agree - Rachel had more than a 6 share in the Preakness (a whopping 38% increase over last year) while Zenyatta's biggest race in the BCC only garnerned a tv rating of 0.9. Bull riding and figure skating the following Sunday garnered a 0.8. Go figure. Rachel earned the honors long before the BCC. Rachel gets my vote for Horse of the Year.
