A company that claims to be a leading authority in creating virtual simulations of major thoroughbred stakes races and fantasy-style matchups has created a simulation in advance of this weekend's Breeders' Cup that matches undefeated Zenyatta against some of the great horses through history.

Key word there is some. There are notable omissions, including Secretariat and Seattle Slew. Horse Racing Simulation LLC president Michael Calderone said via e-mail if Zenyatta wins her second straight BC Classic this weekend, his company will do another simulation that will include Secretariat. He did not say why Secretariat wasn't included in this one.

Nonetheless, it is entertaining, and sure to be a conversation starter if you're into horse racing. Video is embedded below.
