Thursday Zenyatta's Notes
Today's Zenyatta notes (courtesy Breeders' Cup)
The undefeated Zenyatta, looking to win a historic 20th straight race with a repeat in the Breeders’ Cup Classic on November 6, is getting more and more aggressive in her training each day, indicating to her connections that she’s ready for her toughest test yet. On Thursday, it took all of exercise rider Steve Willard’s strength to contain her during her 1 ½ mile gallop over the main Hollywood Park track.
“She’s pretty solid,” said trainer John Shirreffs, as he watched her gallop.
“She’s pretty aggressive today,” added Willard as he dismounted. “She’s really wanting to do some more. She’s ready for a work.
Jerry and Ann Moss’ two-time champion will continue to gallop one more day, Friday, and her final timed workout will be Saturday, October 30. She is scheduled to leave California for Kentucky on Tuesday, November 2.
