On Saturday, undefeated thoroughbred sensation will make her final start in the $5 million Breeders Cup Classic, and the speculation over whether Zenyatta is the greatest of all-time has reached one of television's most famous news programs

"Well, if we can pull it off, she's never been beaten. So how can you argue with perfection, you know?" Smith replied.
