SpectraVET Classic Performance of the Week: Zenyatta at the Breeders’ Cup

Today we revisit Nov. 7, 2009, when undefeated Zenyatta came from behind to become the first filly to win the Breeders’ Cup Classic.

The field of 12 horses she triumphed over included 2009 Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird; 2009 Belmont Stakes, Travers Stakes and Jockey Club Gold Cup hero Summer Bird; European Group 1 winners Twice over and Rip Van Winkle; and Pacific Classic winner Richard’s Kid. The runner-up, Gio Ponti, was the winner of four Grade 1 Stakes in 2009, including the Arlington Million, and was named Champion Older Male and Champion Male Grass horse. Zenyatta finished the 1¼ miles in 2:00.62, leading an incredible charge down the homestretch you’ve got to see to believe.
