This week marks the opening of my two favorite summer racing meets. Saratoga opens up on Friday, and Wednesday opens up the summer meet at Del Mar Racetrack in Del Mar, California.
Easily viewed as the race of the year, the Breeders’ Cup Classic was going to be a coronation for Zenyatta. But a funny thing happened on the way to immortality.
Those of us on two legs love things on four legs because they don’t project the neuroses that are inevitable in human relations. But Zenyatta was just human enough.
