Zenyatta | Lane's End

Hall of famer Zenyatta (Street Cry {Ire}–Vertigineux, by Kris S.) has lost her 2021 foal, a Candy Ride (Arg) filly. The news was reported on Zenyatta's official website Tuesday.

“We at Team Zenyatta and Lane's End Farm are deeply saddened to share that Zenyatta lost her 2021 foal early this year,” the website read. “She had been carrying a second Candy Ride filly, and we grieve the loss of this precious life. Thankfully, Zenyatta remains in excellent health and is doing very well.”

Zenyatta's first two foals, the 9-year-old Cozmic One (Bernardini) and 8-year-old Ziconic (Tapit), both raced, but never won and are not retired, enjoying new careers as show horses. Her 2014 War Front filly died and she was not bred back for 2015. The four-time Eclipse winner's 2016 War Front colt also died and her 2017 filly Zellda (Medaglia d'Oro) has yet to make the races. Zenyatta aborted her 2018 Into Mischief foal, but produced a Candy Ride (Arg) filly named Zilkha May 17 of last year.
