Zenyatta, the 2010 Horse of the Year, became one of America's most beloved new moms when she delivered a healthy dark bay colt at about 10:10 p.m. EST March 8 in Lexington, Kentucky.
The colt is a son of Bernardini. Mother and son were reportedly doing fine at Lane's End Farm.
The superstar mare and her owners, Jerry and Ann Moss, announced the arrival at midnight via Zenyatta's online diary at www.zenyatta.com.
"Dear, dear, dear friends, I am so proud and elated to share the news with you that I am now a MOM," read the diary. "I just gave birth to a lovely dark bay COLT, March 8th, at approximately 10:10 p.m. Eastern Time. My adorable foal weighed in at 130 pounds, has a white star on his forehead … and some white on his feet."
Ann Moss said, "He has polka dots on his feet, Zennie, just like YOU."
