Happy Halloween!

Alys caught Zenyatta in a playful mood and sent us these photos.

We’re counting down to the start of the 2018 Zenyatta Celebration, and it’s just two days away! At noon Pacific Time on Friday, November 2 we’ll begin the event with a blog post unveiling the 2018 Celebration Sticker and this year’s auction items. If you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to visit Zenyatta, this is your chance—we give away five invitations each year.

Don’t forget that tonight is the deadline for entry into our t-shirt design contest. We’ve seen so much great Zenyatta art over the years. If you’d like to see your work printed on a shirt for sale at the Zenyatta Shop, email your entry to fans@zenyatta.com. Full details of the contest can be found here.

See you at the Celebration in a couple days!

  8. Zenyatta is truely a magnificent horse. I am soo happy that she is doing well and I pray for her continued good health. I would love to see her once again in person.

  9. I saw a blurb back in June that John told someone he expected to get Zenyatta’s filly for training. Don’t know if it happened but am surprised Team Z doesn’t tell us her name and where she is.
