bildeNov 1, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The last episode “CBS 60 minutes” did not feature any of those celebrities who are self obsessed with their success and fame. Instead, it made an attempt to introduce us to a humble animal, whose credit is no less than a human, but her tantrums are. Meet, Zenyatta horse, the latest buzz of town and the winner of Breeders’ Cup.

She has been the winner of 19 races and will be participating in the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Saturday, to once again prove her abilities. This celebrity horse has been invited in the “CBS 60 Minutes” for the promotion of the upcoming Breeders’ Cup Classics, which is to be held at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky on November 5 and 6. The show also featured her rider Steve Willard and Jockey Mike Smith. It talked about other aspects of Zenyatta’s life, like how she works out to maintain herself and stay fit. It gave a biographical account of the horse like her training at Hollywood Park under trainer John Shirreff. This Kentucky-bred mare, is just six year old and yet won all the nineteen races she has participated in. She out shined all her male competitors and is expected to do the same for her next play. If she wins the upcoming Breeders’ Cup Classics, it would be her second victory for the event. She emerged nine consecutive grade 1 victory, that includes the preceding Breeders’ Cup Classics.

Zenyatta is a beautiful well built horse who weighs 1,217 pounds, and is 17.2 hands tall. She wears a size seven shoe. That shows that she is gracefully mightier than an average race horse, whose size varies from 15.2 to 16 hands, weighs about 1000 pounds and wears a size 5 or 6 shoe.
