Zenyatta sets record for race victories

By Bob Silbernagel

Zenyatta, the six-year-old filly that won the Breeder's Cup Championship last fall — taking on and defeating all the young studs in the process — established another mark of her dominance Sunday.

She won the Vanity Handicap at Hollywood Park, notching her 17th straight win, with no defeats.

In winning 17 in a row, Zenyatta bested the winning streaks of such great Thoroughbreds as Citation and Cigar, who each had 16 straight victories.

For a time Sunday, it looked like Zenyatta's streak might also end at 16. But she lengthened her stride in the home stretch to speed past St. Trinians and win by a half length. That's her pounding toward the finish line, with Jockey Mike Smith aboard in the torquoise silks, in this Associated Press photo.
