yes, they're probably far inferior to her!
but why would she bother?

I don't know. 7 million dollars. Make more then half in one race then she made in her entire career. Kind of an obvious answer.

Finally a Winx contest we can get excited about

Does Winx need to go to Europe?

Wouldn't it be great to see #Winx and #Enable clash in the future!?

Will Winx get to take on the flying filly at Royal Ascot?

Winx v Enable: Officially, it's a dead-heat

As for the BS debate of older vs younger

Conquistador Cielo in the Met Mile
Holy Bull against older horses in the 1994 season
Citation in the Seminole Handicap against Armed 1947 Horse of the Year.

Older vs Younger means just as much as Brown vs Gray.
Haha. 3 examples from the last 70 years closes the case.

I only posted this meaningless post because I was so inspired by the quoted meaningless post.

And, just for the record, as a self-declared solid handicapper, in the long run, I'll take the older horse if that's what I'm left with to break the tie.

Edit: If the 3 yo is proven against older, then age certainly is meaningless.
