Zenyatta, the queen of North American racing, will have a reception befitting a queen when she arrives in Louisville on Tuesday for her shot at a repeat victory in the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic (GI) on Saturday at Churchill Downs.


Owned by Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Moss, Zenyatta is scheduled to arrive at Louisville International Airport at 11:45 a.m. (all times Eastern) after a charter flight from her home base in Southern California.


“She will be the first one off the plane and loaded on a private van,” said Buddy Fife, representative for carrier Tex Sutton. “She will go straight to Churchill Downs, a five-minute drive.”


Zenyatta will have a two-car sheriff escort to Churchill Downs, where she will be stabled in Barn 41.

A winner of all 19 of her career starts and earner of $6,404,580, Zenyatta will attempt to join Tiznow as the only horse to win two consecutive runnings of the Breeders' Cup Classic.  As she attempts to complete her racing career with a perfect record, Zenyatta is also bidding to become the first horse to win three races in the Breeders' Cup World Championships.
