Sunday evening, several hours after Zenyatta caught a game St Trinians
in deep stretch of the $250,000 Vanity Handicap to extend her unbeaten
streak to 17, trainer Mike Mitchell sent John Shirreffs a text message.

wanted to offer congratulations, with a friendly piece of advice at the
"I think it's time Zenyatta left California," he wrote.
Mitchell will get his wish, but probably not as soon as he would like.
