INGLEWOOD, Calif. (Oct. 14, 2010)—Zenyatta, who has won all 19 of her starts, worked five furlongs in 1:02 3/5 Thursday morning over the Cushion Track at Hollywood Park.
The drill, which occurred with stablemate El Vino, was the first for the brilliant 6-year-old mare since her third consecutive victory in the Lady’s Secret Stakes on Oct. 2 during opening weekend of the inaugural Oak Tree at Hollywood Park meet.
Owned by Jerry and Ann Moss and trained by John Shirreffs, Zenyatta is expected to have two more local works before she heads to Kentucky for a defense of her title in the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov. 6 at Churchill Downs.
According to Hollywood Park clocker and morning line maker Russ Hudak, Zenyatta was timed in 13 4/5 seconds for the first eighth of a mile, 25 4/5 for the half mile, 38 2/5 for three furlongs, meaning she completed the last quarter of a mile in 24 1/5 seconds. She galloped out six furlongs in 1:16 2/5.
