Breeders Cup 2009 in the books

It was another typical Breeders Cup with 37 of the 42 top three spots represented by descendants of Northern Dancer who took home over 80% of the $25,000,000+ in purse money. There were amazing performances by two mares in Goldikova and Zenyatta, with Zenyatta retaining her perfect record (unfortunately she was one of the five who were not descendants of our Dancer but it didn't stop me from cheering for her).

Let's meet a few more of the great grandkids.
