Life is Sweet

The second Grade 1 winner raised at Mill Ridge out of the Wygod’s foundation mare Sweet Life. Life is Sweet experienced her greatest success as a 4-year-old in 2009 while trained by John Shirreffs. She not only captured the Breeders Cup Ladies’ Classic (G1) but also the Santa Margarita Invitational Handicap (G1), the La Canada (G2) and El Encino Stakes (G2). She took on males in the TVG/Betfair Hollywood Gold Cup (G1), finishing third, and ran second to unbeaten champion Zenyatta in the Milady Handicap (G2). She may be best remembered, by her connections, for her sleepy mornings and providing John the first sweep of both Breeders Cup Classics in the same year, with Zenyatta winning the 2009 Breeders Cup Classic.
