Zenyatta has given us three beautiful foals in three years. She excels at motherhood, a role she wholeheartedly enjoys.

From the start, Zenyatta’s happiness and well-being has been our top priority. Following the birth of her perfect new filly, we have decided to honor her by giving her a year off from foaling. She will not be bred this year.

Zenyatta continues to be in good health and excellent condition. She will have time to rest, mentally and physically, and to enjoy being a horse in one of the most beautiful places in the country. We would like to thank the wonderful people at Lane’s End Farm for making all of this possible.

We’re so proud of our Queen!

-Team Z

P.S. Zenyatta may be taking a year off, but Zenyatta.com is not! We will be right here as your only official source for all things Zenyatta, Cozmic One, Ziconic, and 14Z.

  1. Was starting to wonder, and am so glad to hear of this decision to give Zenyatta a rest from breeding. I hope you’ll always see her well being as paramount and her value as a broodmare as secondary. She is a rare gem of a horse and deserves the best life that can be sustained for her. Brava for making this choice!

  2. That’s very good news. She deserves a rest.

  3. Just read this news and can’t explain how happy I am to hear this.
    It says a lot about the owners!!!! Great news.

    Beautiful Zenyatta enjoy your rest. Thank you for the
    3 superb foals you wonderful lady.

  4. I am Happy to know that Zenyatta will have a year off to rest and enjoy being a horse with no duties and just be her happy go lucky self for awhile. She is still so beautiful and what a loving MOM she has been to all of her babies and also teaching them so well. Cozmic One and Iconic have really grown to be Beautiful and look much like Zen and Princess Z seems to take after Zen also and will be a unusual beauty. Congratulations on making right breeding choices for Zenyatta and thank you so much for resting her from breeding for one year. Love you very much Queen Zenyatta and will be watching how you are doing as the news comes out.
