Expecting Again!

Zenyatta prepares for her second foal!

Zenyatta, the incredible mare that won the 2008 Breeder’s Cup Ladies’ Classic and Breeder’s Cup Classic in 2009  is expecting again! This time, owners Jerry and Ann Moss bred Zenny to Tapit, a race horse who is the sire (father) of 2011 juvenile champion, Hansen. On Tuesday May 8th, an ultrasound revealed that the mare was pregnant at that Zenyatta’s unnamed colt would soon have a sibling. It will be interesting to see how these superstar foals fair once they hit the track, and if they will be able to fill their mother’s very heavy shoes.
