VERSAILLES, KY — (April 20, 2014) It’s a girl! Zenyatta’s third foal was born last night at Lane’s End Farm. The bay filly by War Front arrived at 12:03 am, just in time for Easter. She has one white sock and a blaze.

The foaling, Zenyatta’s third in three years, went smoothly. In attendance were Zenyatta’s owners, Jerry and Ann Moss, Dr. Holder from Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, as well as Farm Manager Mike Cline, Broodmare Manager Charles Campbell, and others from Lane’s End Farm. The Mosses are overjoyed to welcome the latest member of Zenyatta’s family. The loving mother and full-of-life foal enjoyed a beautiful and sunny Easter day.

Zenyatta has previously delivered colts by Bernardini and Tapit. Cozmic One, born in 2012, is now in training at Mayberry Farm in Ocala, FL. Ziconic, the recently-named chestnut colt by Tapit, is a yearling under the care of Lane’s End Farm.

Thanks to the Zenyatta fans who have kept watch, posted comments, and sent good wishes!

  1. Welcome Zenyatta’s Princess!! Queen Z, my devoted love and wishes to you and your Lane End’s family!! Health and happiness to you all!!

  2. What a sweet face she has. I’am so happy all went well and Mommy and Baby are healthy and sound. What a beautiful addition to the TeamZ Family Thank-You TeamZ for the Photos and Post will be anxiously waiting for more. I know you are super busy this time of year, so any info and photos are truly appreciated.

  3. @ Sheena–I remember well all the flap about Princess Margaret–I was very upset about it at the time! That was one of the few times that I was ever disappointed in the Queen. I know she thought it was the right decision at the time,but,if she had known then what havoc that decision would cause,she might have decided differently. I really believe that all of her decisions have come from her intense sense of duty and responsibility. I simply will always love and respect her!

  4. So happy all went well with delivery!!! We now have a Princess to follow in the
    Queen’s hoofprints. Congratulations to all!!!

  5. She is very beautiful, I love Z, and now I love Cosmic One, I think he has his Momma’s eye and he’s getting very tall ! I was her’s and now I’m lucky to be his Cosmetologist. I do his mane and give him a trim when needed. He’s so good. Much luck and prayers to all and thank you for all the updates.

  6. Yay! A filly! Shes so cute and its so cool that Cozmic was born on April Fools Day (so was Zenyatta) and now a easter filly! :)

  7. Love the baby!!!! Got her on my home page!!

  8. OMG finally a filly! You must name her either 2 Times Lucky
    Or ZWarriors Princess

  9. How about “Sheeez The One”?

  10. i love Zenyatta . I followed her as she raced and saw her in Del Mar and if i’m not mistaken at the Breeders Cup . Fans would go nuts when she came out . She always seemed to do a little pre-race dance out to saddling area . It was like here I am and I know I ‘m awesome . Now she has some babies we can watch grow and race. Very exciting . Big kiss to Zenyatta & her new baby from Santa Barbara , Calif fans.

  11. For a name, how about Zenyatta’s War. After all, with all the talk of Zenyatta being the only female in the race, I feel like it was a war. Zenyatta’s War.

  12. I really like Zadie which means princess, or Zuri meaning good or beautiful, or Zanna meaning God’s gracious gift or Zeta meaning Born last

  13. I think Z in 2016 should be bred to Chitoz a horse by Forest Wildcat out of a winning Affirmed mare and get a good turf filly or colt out of him!!1 he is a hansome boy too!!

  14. I fell in love with horses after watching the queen ! Now I live for the photos of her and the babies! She inspired me to become a horse owner. Thanks Z for the journey!

  15. Love Zenyatta, and her beautiful colts, cant wait to follow there race experiences. Im hoping that after z takes a break, Maybe u would look in the direction of Eskendereya to breed her to. I personally think they would be a great match for a colt that could be a possible triple crown threat. Please Consider could use the excitement , LoL. Seriously Though Please Consider. Huge Fan of Z! Thanks Steve Pewitt

  16. Prinzess Zophia
    She is a really beautiful baby.
