In this morning's San Diego Union-Tribune, Nick Canepa wants us to stop for a minute and think things through before proclaiming Zenyatta as the greatest of all time as jockey Mike Smith did after last weekend's Hirsch. He's not even convinced that Z is the best filly or mare in history. “I refuse to say Zenyatta is better than Ruffian. I can't. I won't.”
“I realize there are some people who can't remember the Jonas Brother, let alone the Beatles, but are you telling me Zenyatta's better than Secretariat? YouTube Secretariat in the Belmont, the most dominating performance in the history of sports, and tell me Zenyatta could beat that freak.”
Where does Zenyatta rank in your mind against the greatest in history?
