Gr1 Zenyatta Runner-Up "Hooked" From BC Ladies Classic
Last start Gr1 placegetter Joyful Victory (Tapit-Wild Lucy Black, by Wild Again) will miss the Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic in favour of easier opposition in the Gr2 Chilukki Stakes at Kentucky. Her Gr1 second placing was while carrying 5 pounds less than the first and third placed horses, but she would meet them at level weights in the Ladies Classic. A winner of four races, Joyful Victory will stay in training next season as a 5-year-old, with her trainer Larry Jones telling drf.com: "We're still looking for that elusive Grade 1. And who knows? Maybe that prep the other day was a prep for the 2013 Breeders' Cup."
