2012 Zenyatta Result: Love and Pride Goes Gate To Wire

Love and Pride did all the dirty work on the front end en route to a gate to wire victory in the Grade 1 Zenyatta Stakes at Santa Anita.

In her last start, Love and Pride scored a big upset over Royal Delta and It's Tricky in the Grade 1 Personal Ensign in a fantastic performance. She backed that up performance with an easy victory in the Grade 1 Zenyatta Stakes at Santa Anita. Setting moderate but honest fractions in the early stages, Love and Pride grabbed the lead right after leaving the gate and was never seriously threatened in the final furlongs.

Post time favorite Amani (CHI) raced well back of the lead pack in the early stages, attempted to make a move on the far turned, faded badly in the stretch and was never a factor.

Up next for Love and Pride is the Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic at Santa Anita on November 2nd.

Following the race there was a jockey's objection between Rosie Napravnik/Joyful Victory and Martin Pedroza/Via Villagio. After a review of the tape, the results were unchanged.
