Last fall we held our fifth annual Zenyatta Celebration, raising over $20,000 for Thoroughbred Rehab Center Inc. Five participants were chosen in a random drawing to win the grand prize, An Invitation to Meet Zenyatta. Each winner was invited to travel with a guest to Lane’s End Farm to meet Zenyatta and receive a tour of the farm. These photos document their visits. Photography by Alys Emson.

View the complete set of photos from these visits in our 2017 Zenyatta Celebration Photo Gallery.

Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow for a special birthday blog post!
