Description: Beholder (KY) B , M, foaled May 9, 2010 (Henny Hughes - Leslie's Lady, by Tricky Creek), an Eclipse Award Champion at two and three, Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner at two, and Breeders' Cup Distaff winner at three is at Keeneland for an important engagement in the Breeders' Cup Classic. A five year old mare facing a tough group of three year old and up males in the the 10 furlong $5 million BC Classic. Two year old Eclipse Award winning Champion, 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah and 8 other accomplished runners will be trying to beat her. Beholder is ridding a six race win streak started last year with her victory, for the second year in a row, in the G1 Zenyatta Stakes, September 27, 2014. She was put on the shelf until her first start as a five year old in the Black Type Santa Lucia Stake at Santa Anita April 10, 2015; she won by 3 3/4 lengths. Beholder came back to win the G3 Adoration Stakes June 13 at Santa Anita to win by 1 1/4 lengths. She then shipped to Del Mar August 1st and won the G1 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes by 7 lengths. She came back in three weeks to win the 10 furlong $1 million G1 Pacific Classic Stakes against the boys and won by 8 1/4 lengths. Beholder topped off her Southern California campaign with a record set by the great Zenyatta, her third win in the G1 Zenyatta Stakes at Santa Anita on September 26th. She arrived at Keeneland last week and developed a fever. However, the fever was related to her travel and she is ready for a Classic meeting with American Pharoah. Beholder is 15-3-0 from 20 career starts and she has earned $4,436,600 for her owners at Spendthrift Farm. She was bred by Clarkland Farms and she is being trained by Richard Mandella. She was ridden by Mike Smith in her 2014 Zenyatta Stakes and jockey Gary Stevens has been aboard for all her other victories since. The Hall Of Fame rider will be in the irons on Saturday. Note: Beholder was scratched from the Classic due to having 'bled' after a gallop workout on Friday. Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
