Grade 1 winner Joyful Victory, owned by Fox Hill Farms, breezed five furlongs Monday at Churchill in preparation for the Grade 1 Zenyatta on Sept. 28 at Santa Anita.

Joyful Victory continued working for her final prep for the Breeders’ Cup Distaff when breezing five furlongs in 1:00.40 on Monday at Churchill for trainer Larry Jones.

Joyful Victory, owned by Fox Hill Farms, will make her next start in the Grade 1 Zenyatta on Sept. 28 at Santa Anita, where earlier this year the 5-year-old mare won the Grade 1 Santa Margarita by four lengths. The Nov. 1 Distaff also will be run at Santa Anita.
