Zenyatta almost beats Blame and the boys 2010 Breeders Cup - Final Stretch - loses by a head [00:20]
Put the blame on Blame for breaking Zenyatta's magnificent winning streak -- and a lot of hearts, too. Jockey Mike Smith wept. Owners Jerry and Ann Moss stood in stunned silence. Trainer John Shirreffs trudged slowly back to the barn, hands in his pockets. Nineteen times the people behind Zenyatta led horse racing's superstar to the track. Nineteen times they'd celebrated with her in the winner's circle. [+] EnlargeZenyatta AP Photo/David J. PhillipJockey Mike Smith blamed himself after the race for Zenyatta's first loss, by a head to Blame. Not this time. Blame beat Zenyatta by a head in a thrilling finish at the Breeders' Cup Classic on Saturday night, handing the 6-year-old mare her first defeat. Zenyatta threaded her way through traffic from last place while the crowd of 72739 urged her on as she unleashed a monstrous closing kick under the lights at Churchill Downs. It was so close, a matter of inches, the result had to be resolved by a photo -- a picture that saddened not only Zenyatta's owners and trainer but millions of fans around the world. It was so close, Ann Moss said she was hoping her horse had "stuck her tongue out" at the finish. Smith blamed himself for the loss. He walked off the track with his head down, dirt stuck to his face. "It was my fault," he said, sobbing. "She should've won."

Proviso - 2010 Diana (G1) [02:11]
Given a heads-up ride by Mike Smith, Proviso struck to the lead in the final furlong and held off a pair of challengers to win a thrilling 72nd renewal of the Grade 1, $500000 Diana on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course. Proviso entered today's race off two consecutive Grade 1 victories at a mile -- the Frank E. Kilroe Mile Handicap at Santa Anita in March and the Just a Game on the Belmont Stakes undercard in June -- and was looking to add a Grade 1 title at the Diana's 1 1/8th mile distance. The Juddmonte Farms homebred tugged at Smith as she raced in third along the rail on the clubhouse turn, but the Hall of Fame rider was able to get her to settle under a firm hold as the field traveled up the backstretch. Angled off the hedge following a half in a modest 49.41, Proviso drew alongside the pacesetters on the far turn. Put to a drive nearing the furlong marker, Proviso claimed a narrow advantage over Dynaslew in the final sixteenth, then held off late the charges of Shared Account and Forever Together to prevail by a head, with Shared Account edging out two-time defending race winner Forever Together by a nose for second. It was an additional head back to fourth-place finisher Dynaslew, who was a neck ahead of Maram in fifth. "To come back to Saratoga and win a Grade 1 is awesome," said Smith, who won the Spa riding titles from 1991-1993. "It wasn't a big field but it was an extremely talented field, and she got the job done. I knew it was going to be a tough race, and ...
