I do love my BEAUTY SLEEP! Photo by Sarah Campion

Happy Monday, Everyone!

It was such a wonderful weekend of racing…plus I had so many fabulous times visiting with MY TEAM during the sales…that I thought it would be best to catch up on my rest!

I know there are some very exciting things happening in the next few weeks…and I really want to be perfectly rested so I can enjoy all of them.

MY JOHN loves this particular photo as he said I used to sleep like this with my head in this position all of the time when I was with him at BARN 55. I have to adjust my ‘tummy’ a bit at this time…as I am now literally ‘sleeping for 2’.

He also loved seeing how TASTY and I share such an endearing relationship. He commented to Dottie last night that the ‘kindness’ of our relationship shows even in this picture.

Tasty really is so sweet. She is always close by…and she literally watches over ME while I sleep. I am so fortunate. A dear friend, like she is to ME…and I am to her…is something to be truly treasured.

On another note, I also want to give a HIGH HOOF to Bernie and the performance of To Honor and Serve this weekend. This colt that he sired won the Pennsylvania Derby in great style…and established a new record while doing so in this victory. Congratulations to all who are involved with this wonderful colt.

Our sport….it is truly very special!

Enjoy your day!

With love,
Hugs to All~

  11. Zenyatta, you are making a very wise decision to catch up on all of your rest after all of your activity, especially since you are in foal and sleeping for 2 and especially since there are many exciting things happening in horseracing in the near future. That is a great picture of you sleeping. Tasty Temptation sounds like a really great, wonderful friend to you. She even watches over you as you sleep.
