Zenyatta has always been one for special occasions. In true form, she foaled just before midnight on her 9th birthday, after a day of celebration.

She delivered a healthy colt by Tapit at 11:47 pm EST on Monday April 1. Estimated at 145 lbs, he is a leggy chestnut with a white blaze similar to Zenyatta’s. Eager to start his new life, he was standing on his own by 12:18 am and nursing within an hour.

Both are doing so very well, and it’s a joy to see how much Zenyatta loves being a mom.

Thank you to all of the fans who have been following The Queen and sending good wishes and blessings. It worked!

We can’t wait to spend the day with little 13Z tomorrow, and there will be many more pictures to come!
