It is a performance that trainer John Shirreffs and thousands of others
never tire of watching - Zenyatta running through the stretch.
Saturday at Santa Anita, Zenyatta, the champion older female of 2008,
extended her unbeaten streak to 13 with a comprehensive win in the
$299,000 Lady's Secret Stakes over 1 1/16 miles. She won by 1 1/4
lengths over Lethal Heat, but the margin was somewhat deceptive. Jockey
Mike Smith hand-rode Zenyatta to the wire in 1:42.89.
