In one of the most memorable Breeders’ Cup Classics in the history of the Championships, Blame held off defending champion Zenyatta by a head at Churchill Downs in the 2010 renewal of the race. In handing Zenyatta her only defeat in a 20-race career, Blame gave jokey Garrett Gomez his 12th victory in the Championships and third of 2010 and provided trainer Al Stall Jr. with his first Breeders’ Cup victory. Blame earned the 2010 Eclipse Award as champion older male.

Blame posted his first victory in his second start on Oct. 17, 2008 at Keeneland, one of four tracks in which he would visit the winner’s circle. In all, Blame would have six graded stakes scores including the Whitney at Saratoga among his nine victories including two other Grade 1s, two Grade 2s and a Grade 3.
