The countdown to the Breeders' Cup got underway over the weekend as both Belmont Park and Santa Anita hosted several major prep races.
At Belmont Park, Wedding Toast showed that she will be a force to be reckoned with in the Breeders' Cup Distaff when she turned in a sharp front-running performance to win the G1 Beldame Stakes.
Out in California, Beholder stamped herself as the major rival to Triple Crown champion American Pharoah for the Breeders' Cup Classic, with yet another dominating performance – this time in the G1 Zenyatta Stakes.
