After a four-furlong breeze from the gate in :49 3/5 at Santa Anita Park Feb. 13, trainer John Shirreffs said Jerry and Ann Moss' homebred Ziconic will likely make his debut at Santa Anita Park Feb. 20.
Cozmic One, the first foal out of 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta, and Indian Trail, a full brother to 2010 champion 2-year-old male Uncle Mo, will square off July 8 in a $75,000 maiden special weight race at Belmont Park.
Ziconic, the unraced second foal out of 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta, has joined his older half brother Cozmic One in the Belmont Park barn of trainer John Sherriffs, according to the official Zenyatta website.
Cozmic One, the long-awaited first foal of Zenyatta, looked a lot like his mother through most of his debut April 17 at Santa Anita Park, trailing a group of five other 3-year-olds in last early on in a mile maiden event.
Cozmic One, the first foal out of Zenyatta, has already shown some of what his mother passed onto him -- strength, stamina, and even an aspect of unwieldiness.

2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta never set foot in New York, but her first-born son Cozmic One arrived at Saratoga Springs' legendary racetrack last month to spend the summer learning about life as a racehorse.
