Few fillies in the 14-horse field were given much of a chance to defeat favorite Fleet Indian in the 2006 Breeders’ Cup Distaff, and Round Pond was among them, dismissed by bettors at odds of nearly 14-to-1. An injured Fleet Indian was vanned from the Churchill Downs track after being pulled up on the far turn, and it was Round Pond who stormed to the lead, winning the 1 1/8-mile race by 5 ½ lengths.

Round Pond was already a multiple stakes winner at that point, including victories in the Grade 1 Acorn and Grade 2 Fantasy in 2005 and the Grade 3 Azeri Breeders’ Cup at Oaklawn Park in her second race of 2006. After two races as a 5-year-old, she was retired with seven wins and $1.99 million in earnings from 13 lifetime starts.
