Dear Fans & Moms,

Just like you, we love birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, first days of new seasons, and many other celebratory occasions—but we think Mother’s Day is so, so special.  Especially when you are THE Queen!

Happiest of Mother’s Days, Zenyatta:  Your Z-Family sends you Love, Hugs, Kisses, and SPECIAL wishes!

Zenyatta so appreciates her own Z-Family, but also holds everyone’s family dear.  Wishing Mothers everywhere, near and far, two-legged and four-legged, an incredibly special Mother’s Day.  And even though this year many of you are not sharing this special day together, the love and bond shared for one’s mom lives in our hearts.

Hugs & Happy Mother’s Day to all!

  1. Sandy,
    Thanks for our Friday laughs with Hovis. What colorful language that guy has developed.

    Judy, Charlie is very handsome and looks great. Healing prayers and thoughts to Angela.

    I hate to see Omaha and Vino Rosso be shuttled. I will never be convinced that it is good for the overall health of the horse. Sorry that they are going to shuttle American Pharoah.
    He is one of my all time favorites. Safety to all of them.

    Churchill has live racing today! And it is going to be on TV.

    1. Dear Shirlee:

      Thanks for your prayers for Angela. She’s going through a difficult time.

      Yes, my boy is doing well, thank God.

      I’m praying that our beloved Pharoah, Omaha and Vino stay healthy and safe too. Love and Hugs, JB

  2. Open Letter to Ann Moss
    Dear Ann,
    I’m hoping you are with Zenny when she foals her Candy Ride filly 🙏 After all, you ARE her momma.

    Prayers and good wishes for a safe delivery Zenny, and a healthy filly 🐴

    All my love and HugZ 💕 Auntie Judy

    1. I’ve been hoping Ann would be there. She was always there for Zenyatta for her foals. Right there with her>

  3. Is Zenyatta overdue at this point? Wishing her an easy delivery and a healthy foal!

    1. Your wish was granted at 5:40 this morning!

    2. Her sire is what I call a “Bright Bay”. Their coat is VERY chestnut colored. She is BIG and Strong like her MOM. With an entirely chestnut coat.!! Beautiful. Lovely. I am so thrilled for her. She will love this filly. This filly with her LONG STRONG LEGS and huge body will become a great racer, like her famous Mother. BIG and Strong!!!! I do hope Sheena can see her from heaven. She would be thrilled!!!!

    1. Dear Judy,

      Thanks for posting this photo of the “candy man”, Candy Ride! He is so handsome — he and Z have produced a gorgeous little filly. Somehow I was thinking she would arrive this weekend. It would have been Preakness Stakes weekend — no Preakness, but we have a birthday to celebrate, and she’s a beauty!

      I am just overjoyed that we have a new little Z to adore❣️

      Hugs and Love

      1. Dear Marshall:

        I bet she’s a good weight. She looks older than just a few hours in the Facebook photos and she’s got height like Z with those beautiful long legs. Gorgeous. Love and Hugs, JB

  13. Welcome to the world little chestnut princess. You are already loved and cherished by more people than you can imagine. Be healthy and take care of those wonderful Roberto ears.

    1. Amen from me!! Oh happy day💕💕💕💕💕

      1. She sure does have those ears!

  14. What a great day, a lovely chestnut filly born on a holiday day in Canada. Today is “Victoria Day” honoring a Queen so it seems very appropriate to me that our Queen Z has her baby, a beautiful filly today. Much love to Zenny and her foal and thanks to Lane’s End from her adoring fans in Canada.

    1. Dear Brenda,

      Well said! Happy Victoria Day to you and all Z fans in beautiful Canada! 🍁
      Love seeing a post from you, my February co-birthday friend.

      Hugs and Love

    2. Dear Brenda:

      Joining Marshall happy to have a post from you. Happy Victoria Day to you and Vic. Love and Hugs, JB

  15. YEAH- happy that Zenyatta and her beautiful chestnut filly are getting along famously and that both of them are healthy and strong. Thank you to Lane’s End and all those involved for sharing and taking such good care of Zenyatta .
