VERSAILLES, Ky. -- Zenyatta is headed off to retirement in Kentucky.

The six-year-old mare whose narrow loss in the Breeders' Cup Classic left her with a 19-1 career record will stand at Lane's End Farm near Versailles. She's expected to arrive in early December.

The farm said in a statement Wednesday that breeding plans have not been finalized for the mare, who was based in California during her career.

Zenyatta won 19 of 20 races with her lone defeat to Blame by a head in the Classic at Churchill Downs. She set a North American earnings record for female horses with more than $7.3 million and won Eclipse Awards as champion older mare in 2008 and '09.
