It was a pleasure to be able to spend time with Zenyatta and see her doing so well. She was looking so good and, most importantly, happy! It was especially great to visit with some of her longtime friends Claudia and Julio, who never missed a race. There was lots of joy to be shared, and of course a few carrots :)
We also were able to visit with Coz, and what a special experience that was. I have always wanted to sit atop Zenyatta, not even hoping to ride her, but never got the chance. There I was, with Isabela and Sergio‘s kind suggestions and help, riding Coz!! It was absolutely thrilling and such a joy…something I had never even dreamed!
He continues to do so well in his new life and they are very excited about his coming competition in the Thoroughbred Makeover this October 5-7. I am so hoping to be there and cheer him on. It is absolutely wonderful to see him soooo relaxed and happy and actually “jumping” in joy.
