On the 10-year anniversary of Tiznow becoming the only horse to win
back-to-back Breeders' Cup Classics, WinStar Farm is offering a
complimentary breeding season to Tiznow for any filly or mare that wins
the 2011 Breeders' Cup Classic on November 5 at Churchill Downs.
WinStar, which became a new corporate partner of the Breeders' Cup in
2011, is hoping to encourage some of the top fillies and mares in
training to follow in Zenyatta's footsteps by contesting Saturday's
featured Classic in prime time, while also celebrating the anniversary
of Tiznow's feat.
"WinStar is thrilled to be involved with racing's championship event,
and we believe this industry has an interest in matching the best horses
against each other in the Classic," said Elliott Walden, president and
CEO at WinStar. "The last few years, we've had the treat of watching
some special fillies and mares in racing, and this year is no different.
Nothing would be a greater honor to Tiznow's accomplishment 10 years
ago than seeing the best fillies and mares face the best boys in front
of a prime-time national TV audience. WinStar is offering a free Tiznow
breeding season to any filly or mare that can win it."
