Horse of the Year and GI Breeders' Cup Classic winner Zenyatta (Street Cry) will be bred to War Front (Danzig) in 2015. The 10-year-old resides at Lane's End Farm and was not bred this season.
"Zenyatta is doing very well," said owner Jerry Moss. "We didn't breed her this year because she had gotten very heavy. She's lost a lot of that weight, which she needed to do. Sometimes that weight can be hard on the legs and she's such a big girl. We saw her just a week ago and she's looking great."
Zenyatta's oldest foal is the 2-year-old colt Cozmic One (Bernardini) and she has a yearling colt named Ziconic (Tapit) in training in Florida.
"She's going to be bred to War Front in the spring and Cozmic One will run here at Santa Anita in a matter of days. Victor Espinoza worked him the other day and he's ready."
Earlier this year, the mare's only filly to date - a weanling by War Front - was euthanized after a paddock accident.
Added Moss, "We suffered a great tragedy, but we've got Cozmic One and her second foal, Ziconic is in training in Florida right now and we're feeling pretty good about the prospects of those two."
