Breeders' Cup Classic
Zenyatta finally loses (Nov. 6)
Seeking to go 20-for-20, Zenyatta came up short ... but just barely. The 6-year-old mare, the only female in the bunch, fell behind by nearly 20 lengths, a ridiculous deficit against top horses, but stormed all the way back only to lose a photo finish to Blame. Even in defeat, Zenyatta put on a show-stopping performance in front of more than 72,000 at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.
