Zenyatta captured the racing world’s attention with her scintillating performances resulting in 19 victories and one nail-biting photo finish loss in 20 career starts. Following her spectacular racing campaign spanning three years and culminating in a 2010 Eclipse Award for the Horse of the Year, the gentle dark bay giantess, known to many as simply “The Queen,” was retired to begin her new calling as a mom.
Zenyatta was bred to the popular sire and muliple-stakes winner Bernardini, who won his own Eclipse Award as Champion 3-Year-Old Male Horse of the Year in 2006. This coupling of royal bloodlines led to one of the most highly anticipated births in thoroughbred racing history. On the evening of March 8, 2012 at Lane’s End Farm in the heart of Kentucky’s famous bluegrass region, Zenyatta gave birth to a strapping dark bay colt with a diamond shaped white star. Born in the spotlight, he brings the hopes of a new generation for all Zenyatta fans and racing followers.
