The difference .. Marciano ,the Dolphins , PR actually didn't face the same competition over and over and over and over and over like the humongously overrated Zenyatta

Personal Ensign beat Winning Colors. Zenyatta has no one she can point to as a sign of being greater than that. She's a very good mare in a non-vintage year, but comparing Zenyatta to any of the items in that photo is like comparing the planet Jupiter to a pebble on the beach.

If she goes Classic and not Ladies Classic, as much as she love synthetics, and the Santa Anita track, who's got a better closing kick in racing. Some of those colts may be startled when they look and see that big mare coming like a runaway locomotive running right on by them to the wire. I like Zenyatta's chances in the Classic. If she win's, it will be a better group of males than Rachael Alexandra has ever even come close to beating.

C- I gotta agree with you. May I add when I think of a BC turf sprint, I DON'T think about an "about 6 1/2 furlong" distance, running downhill, turning to the right, then turning to the left, then running across a few strides of polycrap, then finishing the race. The fact that for the second year in a row LOTS of good horses won't be making the trek to CA shows conclusively that the people at BC Ltd have absolutely no clue. Like you, I didn't make a single bet last year, and I'll risk even less this year. And now comes the story of how the betting handle at Oak Tree is way down. Go figure. I would be willing to bet, however, that the 3 million $$$ pick-6 gaurantee WON'T be reached, but this is hardly news. As for Zenyatta, I honestly believe that winning the BC Classic still won't be enough to dislodge Rachel from Horse of the year, if she goes that way at all. Her handlers seem to have a rough time facing anyone worthy.

Why does everyone forget Peppers Pride, 19-0. Just because she did not run at one of the "major" tracks on one of the coasts does not diminish her accomplishment.

Thorogal, You wrote this about Jess Jackson: "If he's such a sport then support the Breeder Cup which was founded to showcase the champions to the public and determine who's best in head to head competition on the race track" The Breeders Cup Classic is supposed to be run on DIRT, not something else. If you had a great dirt horse, would anyone expect you to take a shot in the Turf? It's the same difference. Why should he be compelled to "support" the Breeders Cup, considering what a joke it has become? As a bettor, I didn't "support" the Breeders Cup last year, and I won't be lending my "support" this year either. I wonder what John Gaines would've said about the current condition of the Breeders Cup: a bloated race schedule filled with ridiculous divisions, no DIRT championships for 2 years in a row, and non-dirt events being falsely labled as "dirt" races.

Hialeah -- Because I could not choose from among my 30-0 Bruins squads...1964, 1967, 1972 or 1973. And, before I get in trouble, I'd better mention San Francisco (1956), North Carolina (1957) and Indiana (1976) as the other prime examples of collegiate basketball perfection.

Why so many detractors if she is undeafeated? Has to be something to all the negative don't you think Mr. Jay? I think she has been solid in her career but I do believe her record on paper is with the greats but maybe its the poly but I am not buying. Show me in the classic and beat Europe's best and I might buy in. Till then I'm out. George in Tampa
