Zenyatta Wins US Gr1 Vanity Handicap
Meanwhile at the same meeting Darley's Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry (Machiavellian-Helen Street, by Troy) made it a Gr1 double when undefeated Gr1-winning 4YO daughter Zenyatta (Street Cry-Vertigineux, by Kris S) had to work a little harder than usual to score in the US$300,000 Gr1 Vanity Handicap (9 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Hollywood Park by half-a-length. Deep into the red, and ridden by Mike Smith for trainer John Shirreffs), Zenyatta's victory was her 6th on the trot from 6 starts. Runner-up was Tough Tiz's Sis (Tiznow-Leaseholder, by Taylor's Falls), with Silver Swallow (Alphabet Soup-Topsom, by Red Ransom) third. Zenyatta was a US$60,000 yearling at Keeneland in September 2005, and was unraced as a juvenile.
