Zenyatta’s Portrait the Payoff in Story
“American Thoroughbred,” a fine art photography collection shot by Neil Latham that showcases Zenyatta’s portrait, has been earning accolades in top sports, horse racing, photography and news media. Not only is Zenyatta’s portrait often featured, but her iconic prowess and presence are brought up again and again.

In a recent story, she fulfills the photographer’s quest to capture the essence of the Thoroughbred, no small feat as more than 100 top-name racehorses had been unable to do so. “She was the most glorious creature I had ever seen,” says Latham. “All of my photos portrayed the power and dominance of the breed, but it wasn’t until Zenyatta that I was able to reveal the emotional, fragile side,” he explains.

“American Thoroughbred” also earned a full page story in The New York Times sports section with a mention on the front page, as well as stories in Blood-Horse, Vanity Fair, The Paulick Report, and more. See a few in the following links:

  1. Dear Kathy.Such a wonderful devotional for the beginning of a new month.Selfridges are already planning for Christmas and Harrods winter world opens next week I believe.We have 141 shopping days left!It’s all going off here with Call me Dave’s resignation honours list it smacks of cronyism.Now as you know I am a traditionalist but this is a mockery of the system.Sam Cam’s stylist gets an OBE and someone who helped George Osborne to lose weight and change his hairstyle gets an award.Everyone is saying only Larry the cat isn’t on the list and he should be!!Mother Theresa will have to recommend the list to Her Majesty.It’s the first honours list since Sir John Major.Gladstone’s new boss gets a knighthood.Larry has 88000 followers now and is going to sleep through the whole of august.
    I was watching Glesni on the boing perch preening and can’t believe she will soon be leaving.She is fishing every day now to build herself up for the long journey.W7 was having a good feed from Mrs G when I looked in.Thank God she is better..Mr Fibbs .s conbenshun starts this week!Something to look forward to an honest kind politician doughnuts for everyone.Further to my conversation with “Prince Harry” he wants me to be an ambassador for the world’s poor!!.Is the guy crazy or what??
    Poor Zoe has more sick friends for us to pray for and the ratties are turtling in their socks.A typical Welsh summer’s day here cool and damp.Mullins had a great Galway festival knocked Dermot off his perch!Dolly the diva is trying to keep cool but still looking pretty.Boo continues to lose a few likes.We are all doomed!Poor Kiara has renal failure now but is still fighting and eating well.Sasha is having surgery today but Nikos the kitten is much better!God bless all these sick furbabies.Remember to turtle.Love and hugs to you,Kisses for Angel Holly,Nikko and Sugar.SheenaXOXO

  2. Dear Sheena,

    I have a hard time getting into the full swing Christmas spirit until I’ve gotten through Thanksgiving! lol I agree Larry should be on the list. He is a smart cat to sleep through August! That’s good Glesni is eating a lot. The ospreys sure have a hard life! That’s wonderfulW7 is better. Sounds like Fibbs’ conbenshun will be a lot better than the last 2! I like the sound of doughnuts for everyone. I think being an ambassador for the world’s poor would take up way too much of your time. Zoe’s prayer request list is getting quite long. Smart ratties, turtling on Mondays. It’s a little cooler here but we can still feel the humidity. I’ll be so glad when the truly cool weather arrives! Congratulations to Mullins! Clever Dolly, looking glamorous in spite of the heat. Boo’s mom needs to post more to get those likes back up. Sad for Kiara’s struggle to survive. A good sign that she is eating well. Prayers that Sasha’s surgery goes well. Good news that Nikos is better. Have a good day. Love and hugs from me, kisses from Angel Holly, Nikko and Sugar. Kathy XOXO
