In what figures to be her final tune-up for a planned start in next
Saturday's Grade I, $300,000 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes at Del
Mar, Zenyatta breezed an easy 6 furlongs in 1:13.60 Friday morning at Hollywood Park.
Her regular jockey, Mike Smith, handled the workout for trainer John
Shirreffs. The move was the fourth fastest among 13 horses at that distance and
followed a bullet 1:12.40 in her previous workout last Thursday, July 22.
The unbeaten Zenyatta, who set a North American record of 17 straight
victories in Hollywood
Park's Vanity Handicap in
her most recent outing June 13, has won the Hirsch the past two years.
