Zenyatta Paintings to Benefit Thoroughbred Adoption

Two "Moneigh" paintings created by Zenyatta will be available for sale in ReRun's eBay store December 26, 2009. On that day Zenyatta, the Breeders' Cup Classic winner with an unbroken 14 for 14 win record, will make her final appearance at Santa Anita Racetrack's Opening Day in a parade before fans. There will also be a special Winners Circle ceremony to honor her spectacular career.

ReRun Inc. is a national non-profit Thoroughbred adoption group. The eBay store is on ReRun's Web site, which is also the site of ReRun's annual fundraising campaign.

The special online sale will also feature two Moneighs by Zenyatta's stablemate, Life is Sweet, winner of the Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic. The horses create the paintings using their muzzles, whiskers, hoof, and tail.

"Zenyatta Moneighs commemorate her brilliance and exit from the racing stage and that she and Life is Sweet are raising needed funds to help less famous Thoroughbreds get good homes," said Mary Simons, who heads up ReRun's Moneigh fundraising program.
