In postings on its social media outlets June 2, Coolmore Stud said Vertigineux, dam of 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta, died last year at age 19.
For the third time in her career, Zenyatta three-peated in a grade I race when she used her patented late charge to post a half-length triumph in Oak Tree's $250,000 Lady's Secret Stakes (gr. I) at Hollywood Park Oct. 2
Thrilling another crowd with her spine-tingling late charge, the undefeated mare nabbed a determined St Trinians by a half-length for her 17th consecutive victory in the June 13 Vanity Handicap (gr. I) at Hollywood Park.
Undefeated Zenyatta, showing she's ready for next month's much-anticipated Apple Blossom Handicap (gr. I), rallied in deep stretch to register her 15th consecutive victory March 13 in the $250,000 Santa Margarita (gr. I).
Zenyatta extended her unbeaten streak to four races and defeated a champion in doing so when she took the $500,000 Apple Blossom Handicap (gr. I) at Oaklawn Park April 5.
