It's BATH TIME! Photo by Sarah Campion

Happy Friday!

I hope all of you are making some fun plans for the weekend. I am! This morning I had the most relaxing time. Not only did I have a very cool and refreshing BATH, but I also got to play in the water with my guys! It felt terrific!

As you can see, it is a very pretty morning in Lexington. Lane’s End is such a beautiful place to live. I am really enjoying myself.

Sarah took these photos this morning so you could get a chance to see ME as I am at this very moment. I’m doing everything just as a should….as an expectant MOM…. and I am really starting to have that ‘IN FOAL’ look.

Baby-to-be and I are doing GREAT! Everyone is so gracious to ME! My dear paddock pal, Tasty Temptation, and I are enjoying every single moment of this attention. I must say…I really feel SO PAMPERED and LOVED. LUCKY ME!

Gotta' love those SUDS!

This weekend, as has been the case often this summer, both Del Mar and Saratoga are featuring some very competitive Grade 1 races. This time for 3 year old fillies….one on the main track and one on the dirt. Other race tracks are also offering some terrific races. I hope you have a great time handicapping and enjoying our SPORT!

With Love,
Hugs to All~


  1. Judy Berube, can I hire u for a minute?! I’m doing online traffic school!!! Can u see if u can find out if Mildly Offensive is OK after her nasty stumble out of the gate in the 3rd race at Del Mar yesterday?

  2. Dear Susan in Tn:
    Loved your KFC joke. Also, calling your 12 and 14 year olds “little boys”, love it. Hugs, J.B.

    1. Judy – Kate! These pics are amazing. They’re so funny and I keep lahgniug at all the fun and funny things that were happening. Everyone I have shared these with think you’re so awesome and can’t wait for a reason for you to take pictures of THEM! I’m so sad there won’t be anymore daily teasers but I can’t wait for more pics of my own! =)

  3. @Barbara Grimaldi, Calvin is a homebody. IIRC, he lives in Kentucky and prefers to stay in the area. He will travel for specific races, but doesn’t care to pick up his tack and move for the season. It’s summer, and there’s fishing to be done.

  4. Dear DJ:
    Beautiful Morning Prayer. Thank you. Hugs, J.B.

  5. Dear J. Smith:
    Will see if I can find anything. Hugs, J.B.

  6. Dear Terry Crow:
    Very funny joke. As far as Charity is concerned, the only way she can lose is if she’s struck by lightning in the starting gate; so bet heavy and laugh all the way to the bank. Hugs, J.B.

  7. Dear DJ:
    Oops. Meant to say beautiful Evening Prayer. Hugs, J.B.

  8. Dear Katherine Wheeler:
    Thank you so much for your kind words. I didn’t know he was Kelso’s sire until I found that article. What a brave, wonderful horse he was. Hugs, J.B.

  9. Dear Trina:
    Alas, that was one of my picks without betting. Love Street Cry’s babies. Of course, one especially. Hugs, J.B.

  10. Dear Arlene:
    You’re so welcome. Love that video. Kari B. has done some beautiful tributes to Z. Hugs, J.B.

  11. Dear A Fans:
    Thank you for all the great posts and links over this weekend. Enjoyed them all. Hugs, J.B.

  12. Dear J. Smith:
    Here’s a link to Mildly Offensive’s race yesterday at Del Mar. Unless there’s something written in the next few days, there’s no reference to any problem with her in this article except that she stumbled when leaving the gate. Hope she is fine. Hugs, J.B. http://ftp.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/64645/tanda-topples-rancho-bernardo-foes

  13. Oops:
    I’m having a bad brain day.
    Meant: Dear Z Fans:
    Hugs, J.B.

  14. J.B. u the best. Thanks.

  15. LAURA J: I think Calvin is one of the best jockeys I’ve ever seen. I can understand the DUI because of always eating like a bird and being small, but he was always at the big tracks. Thanks for telling me he likes it there and doesn’t like to be on the road…He bragged a lot about Rachel Alexandra and then didn’t deliver–I thought the industry sort of pushed him aside for that.
    The “annex” website Judy B included above is incorrect. I will not publish the new site here, out of respect for Dottie and our Z. We will get the new URL out via emails to those we have emails for. This site, Zenny’s site, stays the beautiful, peaceful, loving, informative and gentle place we all love.

  16. @JB, thank you will try it, and I LOVE THAT NAME…o, yes, I do. I, too, am having a bad brain day..not good at work..Lisa g.

  18. you are as beautiful as ever !!! you are number one !!! There will never be another like you !!!!!!

  19. You look beautiful!!!

  20. Zenyatta, I’m very happy to hear that you’re having such a wonderful time and that Lane’s End Farm is such a wonderful place to live. I wish I lived with you in which case I could see you as well as other horses every day. I’m happy to hear that you had fun with your bath and playing in the water. I somehow have had the impression that horses didn’t like anything related to water outside of drinking it. Maybe it depends on the individual horse. I’m also happy to hear that you and your unborn foal are doing well and that you are having fun with your stallmate Tasty Temptation. Keep up the good work taking care of yourself while in foal. I am watching as many races on TV as I can.

  21. I just like the helpful info you supply to your articles. I will bookmark your weblog and test again right here regularly. I’m relatively sure I?ll learn lots of new stuff proper here! Best of luck for the following!
