Goldikova preps for Cup in Foret

The Breeders' Cup three-peat. It has never happened, and only once been attempted, but if things go as planned, Goldikova, the marvelous French miler, will try to make history this year. Goldikova starts Sunday at Longchamp in the Prix de la Foret, and any kind of decent performance will propel her to Churchill Downs and an attempt to win the Breeders' Cup Mile for the third year in a row.

Only one horse has ever even had a shot at winning three BC races in a row, but Lure finished ninth in the 1994 Mile after triumphs the two previous years. Ouija Board racked up two wins and a second in three Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf races, but her wins weren't consecutive, so she didn't have a chance at three straight. Eight other two-time BC winners didn't return to try for a third victory. Zenyatta, the other active two-time BC winner, could also three-peat in 2010. She's expected to try to win the Classic for the second straight year after winning the 2008 Ladies Classic.

The Goldikova likely to show up in Kentucky will look very much like the Goldikova seen the last two years in California, trainer Freddie Head said Wednesday.

"She's the same as last year," said Head. "She's put on a few kilos, maybe. She's stronger at 5. She's keen. She hasn't lost any will, and she wants to run. I think she could be a little fitter this year than last year." Read More
