Zenyatta News

The great mare, Zenyatta, is in foal again – her second time.

After giving birth to a colt sired by Bernardini in March, it has been announced she is now ultra-sound confirmed – pregnant in foal to the big gray stallion Tapit who has been siring some good ones – 18 Graded Stakes winners so far including Kentucky Derby runner Hansen. Nine year old Tapit stands for $125,000.

We’ll just have to wait to see how her offspring do at the track, but my gosh – if even a shade of mom Zenyatta shows up, they’ll be something to watch. Remember the “look at me” prancing and show-off high-stepping mode the giant of a mare used to get into before each race? Remember the mounting tension each time she raced on her way to 19 straight wins? Remember how almost everyone simply loved her?

What an icon she was – racing needs more like her.
