Zenyatta, once again, showed that she doesn't care for the synthetic as much as people would like to think. She is bred distinctly for regular dirt. Street Cry's offspring always handle the synthetics, but excel on the dirt. For those of you who think that she won't be able to catch a horse like Rachel Alexandra in a dirt race with innately speed-favoring tendencies, think again. It's true, personally I think Rachel Alexandra on her best day is better than Zenyatta's best, but it's a lot closer on a dirt track, and her owners are stupid for not sending her to the surface on wh
ich she looked her absolute best (her devastating Apple Blossom and subsequent highest career Beyer of 110).
