INGLEWOOD, Calif. (Nov. 23, 2008) — Patrons will receive a Zenyatta poster autographed by Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith when the unbeaten Horse of the Year candidate is honored at Hollywood Park on Sunday, Nov. 30 — closing day of the 17th Turf Festival.
Zenyatta, owned by Jerry and Ann Moss, has won each of her nine starts, most recently capturing the Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic to clinch distaff honors and establish herself as a legitimate contender for Horse of the Year along with Curlin.
The daughter of Street Cry, trained by John Shirreffs, has earned $2,144,580. She has won four races at Hollywood Park including the Grade II Milady Handicap and Grade I Vanity Handicap at the 2008 Spring/Summer Meet.
The $500,000 Hollywood Derby and the $500,000 Matriarch are the feature events on Sunday’s program, which will also include a $500,000 guarantee on the Pick Six.
