Who would have won? Zenyatta vs. Rachel Alexandara

If Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra would have met in a match race who do you think would have won?? Would you have watched it?

**This is just for fun**

My vote would be for Zenyatta. I personally like her more and have seen more of her races, which makes me rather biased honestly. But I think the way she raced and held back so much before letting go would have put her ahead.

Zenyatta. There's not a single question....I don't mind Rachel, but she's not on the same caliber Zenyatta is.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

The only way Rachael had a chance to beat Zenyatta is if the match race had been run in Rachaels 3 yr old campaign. As a four year old Rachael was not the same horse, hence her retirement so quickly .
But, I still believe Zenyatta would have won, she is just a magnificent race horse.

I would probably have gone with Zenyatta too. I do love Rachel Alexandra and can't wait for her baby to be born to see how he ends up. But Zenyatta is one of my faves.
