Terrell Owens met briefly with Zenyatta

NFL superstar wide receiver Terrell Owens met briefly with Zenyatta the other day. Apparently, T.O. is a big Lady Z fan and wasn’t sure that he would be able to come to her Breeders’ Cup race on November 6th due to having a game the following day. He wanted to meet the horse in person and let her training team know how much he admired the mare.

Whether T.O. was just looking for publicity or if he truly is a Lady Z fan does not matter. The impact that the horse has had on both the rich and famous and the regular Joe is immense.

Zenyatta will have the final race of her career in the BC Classic. Her attempt to set a record with twenty consecutive wins will be realized or dashed at the conclusion of that race. Even though she will probably be the odds on favorite to win the race and will not have a high payout, the sentimental value of a win for Zenyatta greatly outweighs this.
