Zagora was a two-time group III winner in France before being shipped to the United States during her three-year-old season in 2010, but really came into her own in 2012, when her owner, Martin Schwartz, and her trainer, Chad Brown, were determined to make her an American champion on the turf. She won graded stakes races in Florida, Maryland, New York and California from February through November, capping off her season with a gritty victory over a top flight international field in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf. Away at 9-1 odds, jockey Javier Castellano maneuvered Zagora off the rail in the final sixteenth of a mile and she dug down deep to prevail by three-quarters of a length over Marketing Mix. Zagora was later voted Champion Female Turf Horse.
