October 30, 2010 | 11:24 am

Unbeaten Zenyatta had a final tuneup Saturday at Hollywood Park in preparation for the $5-million Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 6 at Churchill Downs, going six furlongs in 1:11 4/5 seconds.

Zenyatta, who has won all 19 of her starts, is scheduled to be shipped to Louisville, Ky., on Tuesday.

She is the talk of racing. She was featured in Sports Illustrated this week. She will receive attention on "60 Minutes" on Sunday with the question, "Is Zenyatta the best racehorse ever?"

Here's a look back at Zenyatta's performance in last year's memorable Breeders' Cup Classic.
