On November 7, 2009, Zenyatta became the first female to win the Grade I Breeders' Cup Classic at Santa Anita Park. She carried 123 lbs and won by 1 length over Gio Ponti. She earned $2,700,000 of the $5,000,000 purse. She became the first horse to win two different Breeders' Cup races, improving her winning record to 14 out of 14.[4] The field of 12 horses she triumphed over included 2009 Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird and 2009 Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird, as well as European Group 1 winners Twice over and Rip Van Winkle, and Pacific Classic winner Richard's Kid. The runner-up, Gio Ponti, was the brilliant winner of four Grade 1 Stakes in 2009 including the Arlington Million, and went on to be named Champion Older Male and Champion Grass horse. Zenyatta finished the 1ΒΌ miles in 2:00.62 and surpassed the 2002 "Horse of the Year" Azeri in North American female earnings. Azeri, who retired in 2004, accumulated earnings in excess of $4,079,820.
