In one of the most memorable races in Breeders’ Cup history, Flanders matched strides with Serena’s Song throughout the entire 1 1/16 miles. Despite sustaining a career-ending injury during the race, under the urging of Pat Day she bravely edged her way inside of her rival and stablemate in the final yards to win by a head. “She was incredibly gutsy,” said Day. “And with all that Serena’s Song went on to do, it gets me thinking what Flanders could have done.” Serena’s Song went on to become the all-time leading female money winner with earnings of $3,283,388.

Both fillies were conditioned by Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas who stated, “Serena’s Song went on to be one of the all-time greats. Looking back, what Flanders did was unbelievable.” In five lifetime starts, no horse ever finished in front of her. Her cumulative margin of victory was 36 1/2 lengths during her brief, but spectacular career.
