In what should have been a race of the ages Blame lost a poorly scheduled race prior race to that year’s Breeder’s Cup Classic against Zenyatta the undefeated mare who was 19 for 19

Sadly Garrett Gomez, who rode Blame passed away tonight as being reported by major horse racing publishments including The Blood Horse. Garrett, like many riders, had a lifelong history of substance abuse and he retired a year ago at 43.

  1. That was a fascinating race to watch! Thanks for sharing, Paul. 🙂 I don’t watch horse races generally, but I decided to give yours a look-see. Haha! I confess to watching it several times in succession, because I needed to see how Zenyatta pulls it off, coming from so far back of the line…..to being nose-to-nose with Blame. WOW!
