Breeders Cup Warmup: The 1988 Distaff

To sure we're not completely sexist, let's look at the best race in the history of the Distaff, the girls' championship race. 1988 pitted a pair of superstars at Churchill Downs:
  • Winning Colors, trained by the gregarious D. Wayne Lukas, who that year became the third filly to ever win the Kentucky Derby.
  • Personal Ensign. Before there was Zenyatta, there was this girl, who was 12-for-12 entering the Distaff, with a campaign that included a win over the boys in the Whitney.
What happens when you put together the two top fillies of the decade on a sloppy track? One of the best finishes in racing history.
