39th ECLIPSE AWARDS
Neither Zenyatta nor Rachel Alexandra were defeated on the racetrack in 2009 but last night at the annual Eclipse Awards staged at the prestigious Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, it was left to the ballot to deliver a decisive “Horse Of The Year” victory… 130 votes to 99… in favour of Rachel Alexandra over Zenyatta.
With the news that Zenyatta will remain in training for 2010, could we expect her to avenge this defeat in a mammoth racetrack showdown between filly and mare?
