Wow, what an amazing run she had. 19-1 is a spectacular record, what an amazing horse. (: Zenyatta had an amazing recovery, coming up from, what, 20 lengths behind? I was reading a report on the race and it said that she wasn't too used to the dirt being kicked up in her face, only racing on dirt twice before, since she is used to running on synthetic surfaces. Also, the reason why they keep on saying that her 20th win will put her in the history books is because she would become the first American Thoroughbred to win 20 consecutive races. ;) Still, congrats to Blame for the win, beating Zenyatta by a nose is a pretty impressive feat.
