Zenyatta Has New Brother at Ashford Stud

A full brother to Horse of the Year Zenyatta was foaled April 9 at Ashford Stud in Lexington, Ky., according to Coolmore, which owns broodmare Vertigineux.

"Vertigineux foaled a brother to Zenyatta at Ashford Stud on April 9," Coolmore said in a message posted on Facebook April 19.

Dermot Ryan, who manages Coolmore's Ashford Stud in Kentucky, told Racing Post, "He's a good quality bay colt, and both mare and foal are doing well."

The colt and Zenyatta are both by Darley stallion Street Cry (IRE).

Jerry and Ann Moss' Zenyatta was named Horse of the Year in 2010 after winning her first 19 starts in a 20-race career, including 13 grade I tallies. She is the only female to capture the Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I).

Vertigineux, a winning daughter of Kris S., has also produced multiple grade I winner Balance.
