The last full training session of Breeders' Cup week was Thursday morning, with most entrants out for gallops or jogs. Low clouds early in the morning hid the mountains from view and blocked out the sunrise.
Zenyatta arrived from her Hollywood Park base on Wednesday and she finally took to the Santa Anita track Thursday. Exercise rider Steve Willard, who was aboard Zenyatta said, "We went out at 6:20 and she stood around and looked around. She jogged off and galloped once around and came back through the paddock. She did it really terrific. Just superb." Jockey Mike Smith added, "She's ready. If she fires, she's certainly going to be the one to beat. I think you're going to see something amazing."
