MOVE OVER UCONN WOMEN. Speaking of impressive distaff winning streaks...

Champion race mare Zenyatta, winner of last year’s Breeders Cup Classic, showed up in Little Rock yesterday for the $500,000 Apple Blossom Handicap Gr.I. The purse for the race would have been $5 million had 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra been in the starting gate as well, but that’s another story.

Zenyatta broke from said gate leisurely and trailed the field the first time past the stands and through the clubhouse turn. She reeled them in at the 5/8ths pole, swooped around the turn and stormed down the stretch for her 16th straight win.

As usual, she made it look easy.
