Breeders Cup Betting - Can Zenyatta wrap up her amazing
Unbeaten two-time champion and older female Zenyatta
continued her careful preparations toward a start in the
$5-million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) on November 6 at
Churchill Downs with an intense seven-furlong workout on
Friday afternoon at Hollywood Park.
With longtime jockey Mike Smith at the reigns, the six-
year-old Street Cry mare breezed through seven furlongs on
the synthetic Cushion Track surface at a 1:27.20 clip
handily. Zenyatta worked out with Sorbonne in the beginning of her workout and then with her
usual workout partner El Vino for the second half of her day.
“The objective today was to not have her pass anyone,” trainer John Shirreffs said of Zenyatta.
“We wanted to keep her focused throughout the entire work because she tends to slack off when
she gets by another horse. We wanted her to have a fresh with her the whole time. It went pretty
much as we had planned.”
Hollywood timer Russ Hudak captured fractional times of 38.80 through three furlongs, 50.80
through a half-mile, and 1:03.20 through five furlongs, and 1:15.20 through three-quarters of a
mile for the unbeaten Zenyatta. The workout was her second since she posted her 19th win in as
many career starts on October 2 in the Lady’s Secret Stakes (G1).
“We wanted 1:27 and we got 1:27.20,” Smith said. “One second off seems pretty good to me.”
Zenyatta is scheduled to work again on October 30 before shipping to Churchill Downs on
November 2. For this long unbeaten legend the Classic is expected to be her final career start.
