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  .

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.
