Zenyatta, Bayakoa, Denise Boudrot, Mike Lapensee - October 10th

Champion older mare Zenyatta equaled Personal Ensign's mark of 13 wins without a loss when she won the Lady's Secret Stakes during the Oak Tree meet at Santa Anita. ~2009
 
Champion mare Bayakoa, winner of the Breeders' Cup Distaff in 1989 and 1990, was born in Argentina. ~1984
 
With female riders still a novelty, Lincoln Downs staged a $5,000 match race between jockeys Denise Boudrot and Mike Lapensee. The race, dubbed the 'contest of the sexes,' was won by Boudrot. In a rematch one week later, in which the riders switched their mounts from their previous encounter, Boudrot again prevailed. ~1974
