ZENYATTA DELIVERS A HEALTHY COLT

By Bob Silbernagel

Zenyatta, the great Thoroughbred who was the first mare to win the Breeder's Cup Championship, was Horse of the Year in 2010 and came up a nose short of ending her racing career undefeated, gave birth to a 130-pound colt Thursday. The sire of the young prince is Bernardini, who won the 2006 Preakness. The photo was by Ann Moss, one of Zenyatta's owners.

You can read more about the birth in Z's Diary on Zenyatta's own web site, linked HERE.

But, for unbearably cute video of the foal and his mother, click on the Los Angeles Times link HERE.
