Ziconic (Tapit), a 6-year-old son of once-beaten Horse of the Year Zenyatta (Street Cry {Ire}), has officially been retired and will move on to a second career as an Off-The-Track-Thoroughrbed, according to a blog post from Ann Holbrook Moss at Ziconic will be under the care of Linda Moss and her husband, George Bedar, at Templeton Farms, a Sportshorse Farm in California.

“George and I are so incredibly honored and over the moon to have the opportunity to provide for Ziconic and to take the journey with him in the coming chapters of his life as an OTTB,” Linda Moss said. “This is the stuff dreams are made of, and having him join our family is beyond words.”

The second foal from the three-time Eclipse Award-winning older mare, the homebred Ziconic was placed eight times from 12 career starts for the Mosses, including a third to Justify (Scat Daddy)’s half-brother The Lieutenant (Street Sense). Ziconic was also fourth to Arrogate (Unbridled’s Song) in his maiden-breaking win.

Ziconic’s year-older half-brother Cozmic One (Bernardini) was retired as a five-race maiden and is an OTTB in Kentucky.
