Horse racing fans and betters alike were rewarded this year with these two classy ladies taking center stage through spring, summer and fall. Both did something never done before:
- Zenyatta beating the boys in the Classic, in style and going 14-for-14 too boot
- Rachel Alexandra winning the Preakness, Haskell and Woodward Stakes - all against colts and in the last case, older males. And don't forget the 20 length Oaks win.
Wow what a year! Can't wait until they meet...Apple Blossom at Oaklawn? Personal Ensign at Saratoga? Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill? Maybe all three and that truly would be something to top their 2009 campaigns.
