Happy Friday!

For nearly three weeks now, Cozmic One has been able to call John Shirreffs’ barn at Belmont home. He’s settling into a relaxed training schedule, where he is permitted to learn and grow at his own pace.

We welcomed him off the truck from Ocala, FL at the end of March and met up with John and the crew at Barn 41 again yesterday. We hope you can share in our experience through the photos and videos below.

Enjoy!
-Team Z

  1. He’s the spitting image of Zenyatta…I hope he’ll race in the triple crown. Maybe he will be the one to break the 36 year drought…

  2. Hi!

    I just love watching these videos of Coz; there are just not enough, of course.

    I am so eager to watch his first race. When will that be?

    Is he a late bloomer as Zenyatta was?

    He is so beautiful.

    Where are the videos of Zenyatta and her baby girl?

    Thank you!

  3. We just have to give KUDOS to Zenny for giving 3 magnificent Babies. You have heard it before but I will say it again and again you have given us a gorgeous family to follow, and hopefully another girl at next breeding. Z looks rested relaxed and wonderful We miss you at the track but we know you will soon be represented by your foals in the mean time many hugs and kisses for your soft warm nose and lots of peppermint kisses to enjoy Stay safe warm and sound.

  4. Oh my gosh, is Coz ever his mother’s son! Can not wait to follow his career with lots of love & prayers!

  5. Zenyattas babies get better looking with each one. Well, at least muscle development. :) they get more buffed with each foal. The filly looks like she was on steroids in the womb lol.

  6. CoZZy is absolutely beautiful. I see alot of the Queen and alot of his Beautiful Daddie in him. The Star, The Ears, he is magnificent. I have read that he is a wild thang, but in these photos, he looks like to ‘the good child’. Best of luck, CoZZy, your Aunt Lisag loves ya.

  7. hi. when is he give a race?
