Dear Fans,

Today we celebrate what would have been our filly’s first birthday by remembering the joy that she brought to the world. We created a memorial page for Z Princess with a collection of images, videos and memories from those who loved her.

View the Z Princess Memorial

This page will always be here on in celebration of her life.

With love,
Team Z


  1. Update from Hot Springs….The Great Buffalo Hunt Continues….
    2 weeks ago 6 bison escaped
    1 recovering at home from injuries after being struck by car
    3 enjoying their temporary digs in borrowed 40 acre pasture here in town
    2 remain at large….Bonnie and Clyde…

    Either B or C was seen yesterday in a subdivision here in town….when observed retreated into large wooded area ….The Buffalo are still winning…

    What i do not understand in why the authorities in NY? found it necessary to slaughter 16 of these animals when they escaped recently…our escapees are providing endless entertainment with their bid for freedom..

    Safe trips to all…

    1. I love the fact the Bison are ahead in this game!! Thanks for sharing the updates.

    2. Thanks, Carol. Could you imagine gardening in your yard and having Bonnie and Clyde wander over to say hello!
      Go, Rivers, Go.

      1. Run Free Bonnie and Clyde. Love and Hugs, JB

    3. Dear Carol,
      Hope Bonnie and Clyde stay safe and that they stay out of NY (the Albany area, I think). That was an awful thing to have happened to those 16 buffalo — apparently, the wildlife people and others decided the safest thing to do was to slaughter them! Really? Surely, there was a better alternative.
      Keep us posted on Bonnie and Clyde. :-)
      Hope you are doing well with your recovery and rehab.
      Hugs and Love

  2. PS-Rivers is running Saturday at Belterra in a handicap race…RUN…RIVERS….RUN

    1. Godspeed Rivers. Love and Hugs, JB

    2. Godspeed to Rivers. Stay safe and free Bonnie & Clyde.

      Carol, I love the fact that your community is enjoying these two rather than going into panic mode.

  8. Thank you to the whole of Team Z,
    The Memorial to Z Princess is a beautiful tribute to her, especially the writings of Ann Moss. The music choice in the “Remembering” video knocked me back because I had heard “IZ” Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What A Wonderful World in my head as I cried upon learning of Z Princess’s death. I turn to listening to IZ’s music when in warn, loving place, when in need of internal solace and when nostalgic for my Dad or Hawai’i
    Yes, I am an animal lover but feel I am also practical about it in the sense we are steward of and partners with them. It is our job as human beings to learn how to understand lt them, not visa versa since we are the one’s with the skills of planning for the future. BUT, how I felt about Z Princess was joy and eagerness beyond anything including Zenyatta, since I came to discover her as grown and racing. Both have greatly affected my soul and I am thankful for this.
    I now can see Z princess and IZ together, over the rainbow together, enjoying each other and waiting to welcome all fans. I’ll be there before too long since I’m 79.
    Thanks again Team Z,
    Ann Mitchell Adam (Classmate of Bruce Headley, 1946/1950 – John & Dottie will know.)

    P. S. I promote; honesty in racing and stricter, more aligned State laws & enforcement, by posting informative information on FaceBook racing group web sites as well as my own.

  9. Sometimes you have a foal that embraces life from the moment they hit the ground. They have a special need to enjoy each and every moment, each and every experience. Friendly and vivacious, they simply shimmer and shine with life and vitality. It’s as if they know something we do not; they have to live their life to the fullest because it will be so short.

    Later after they are gone, we too know each and every minute of their life, of everyone’s life, is a gift.

    Thank you for sharing Zenyatta and her foals, especially the princess.

  10. Z Princess: you now have a lil baby brother, the new lil King of the land. Your momma is doing fine and we all miss you so much. You were born to be great and you are. Your are never forgotten.

  11. Thank you so much for posting Princess Z’s memorial page. She will forever be in my heart and never, never forgotten. It was wonderful to watch the videos and see her and Zenyatta in motion. Happy Birthday to the little Princess Z.
