Well it appears that we aren’t the only ones who enjoy the black stuff. Undefeated, rock-star, super-horse Zenyatta also enjoys her fair share of the best stout on the planet. It seems as though the mare gets rewarded for her hard work by drinking a few bowls full of Guinness Draught (so why do people give me a hard time when I enjoy it the same way?).
Zenyatta passes on lesser beers and opts for Guinness because she enjoys the full, dark texture and the rich, creamy head that the stout is so famous for. She certainly is no stranger to the finer things in life as the horse travels via private jet. And no, I’m not kidding… she really does fly first class.
Guinness has offered a trip to St. James Gate in Dublin, Ireland for Zenyatta, her trainers and owners if she can win at Churchill Downs on Saturday. If she does win, she will improve her race record to a perfect 20-0.
So place your bets and raise a pint to Zenyatta during tomorrow’s Breeders’ Cup. Hopefully she’ll be joining us in the winners circle.
