Stellar Wind Wins Zenyatta Stakes at Santa Anita Park
One of the most anticipated races of the weekend - the $300,000 Grade 1 Zenyatta Stakes went down Saturday, October 1 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California - a 1 1/16 mile race for fillies and mares three years old and upward. Hronis Racing's 2-1 second choice Stellar Wind once again got the better of her nemesis, three-time champion Beholder for the second straight race - this time in a typically terrific duel down the stretch. 2-5 race favorite Beholder held second with Vale Dori another 11 3/4 lengths back in third at 9-1 odds. Stellar Wind, in turn earned an automatic berth into the Breeders' Cup Distaff. Tara's Tango finished an even fourth, followed by Off the Road, to complete the order of finish.
