Comments:

Winner of the Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic in 2008 and the Breeders' Cup Classic in 2009, the only female to do so. By winning the 2010 Apple Blossom Invitational (G1) at Oaklawn, she tied Citation and Cigar with 16 straight wins. She then won the Vanity, Clement Hirsch, and Lady's Secret to extend the streak to 19. She came up 6 inches short in her quest to become the second horse to repeat in the Breeders' Cup Classic, not quite getting up in time to catch Blame and finishing second. She has been retired to Lane's End Farm with no plans announced. She was named 2010 Horse of the Year and Champion Older Female.
