Spendthrift Farm's indefatigable 5-year-old mare was once again much the best at Santa Anita Park, taking the $300,000 Zenyatta Stakes (gr. I) in the easiest of gallops Sept. 26.
With another run against males in the Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) potentially in Beholder's future, it might be easy to overlook the $300,000 Zenyatta Stakes (gr. I) Sept. 26 at Santa Anita, but that would be misguided.
Spendthrift Farm's Beholder turned in what might end up being her final timed workout in preparation for the Sept. 26 Zenyatta Stakes (gr. I) when she covered six furlongs in 1:12 4/5 Sept. 18 at Santa Anita Park.
Eight fillies and mares with graded stakes credentials are scheduled to enter the gate for the $200,000 Yellow Ribbon Stakes (gr. IIT), but only one in the full field of 12 is 3 years old and she may be the one to beat.
Spendthrift Farm's Beholder again showed her talent in the Clement L. Hirsch Stakes (gr. I) at Del Mar Aug. 1, toying with the field to win by open lengths without feeling the whip from Hall of Fame rider Gary Stevens.
Spendthrift Farm's two-time Eclipse Award winner Beholder and Benjamin Warren's upstart 5-year-old Warren's Veneda will take another run at each other in the $300,000 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes (gr. I) Aug. 1 at Del Mar.

Arnold Zetcher's Firing Line was out on the track May 23 at Santa Anita Park for his first gallop since a troubled run in the Xpressbet.com Preakness Stakes (gr. I).
Even without two-time Eclipse Award winner Beholder, the May 9 Vanity Stakes (gr. I) provided some drama with My Sweet Addiction delivering an upset to beat 1-9 favorite Warren's Veneda in the $300,000 event.
While boxing still lingers in the public's collective consciousness, a fight analogy seems the best way to describe the $300,000 Vanity Stakes (gr. I) at Santa Anita Park May 9.
Warren's Veneda continued her dominating run at Santa Anita Park March 14 with a commanding 7 1/4-length victory in the $400,000 Santa Margarita Stakes (gr. I).
