So did anyone watch the end of Jockeys and wonder why they thought they could spin the Breeders' Cup as being all about Mike Smith? How did that happen?
The Classic has and will always be the last race on the card for the Breeders' Cup. I'm sorry, Animal Planet, but you failed so hard. If you're going to wrap up a show that is all about racing, that just happens to hit its finale during the Breeders' Cup, and you're going for what some might call realism (as this is "reality" and all) you can't ever try to convince people that filly and mare races somehow get the limelight, because they don't. Ever. The big headline of the Breeders' Cup was that Curlin lost. Zenyatta won, which is great and all, but that was a footnote to the CURLIN LOST moment. Okay? Okay.
Oh, reality television. Never stop being so factually inconsistent and/or blatantly wrong for the sake of a random storyline no one really cares that much about.
