2010 Horse of the Year, and the enormously popular, Zenyatta gave birth to her second foal (on her own birthday) on April 1, Team Zenyatta announced on Twitter on Monday. The humongous mare foaled a colt by top sire Tapit at 11:47 p.m. EDT at Lane’s End Farm near Lexington.
At about 145 pounds, and with similar facial markings as his mom, the colt was standing on his own by 12:18 a.m. and nursing within the hour.
The now 9-year-old mare and her colt were reported to be doing well.
Zenyatta foaled a colt by Bernardini in 2012.
Owned by Jerry and Ann Moss, Zenyatta won 19 of 20 starts and earned $7.3 million in her racing career.
