Horse of the year, Zenyatta in foal at 60-day mark with Bernardini

Zenyatta, 2010 Horse of the Year owned by Jerry and Ann Moss, has been pronounced in foal at the 60-day mark after being bred with Bernardini.

The 7-year-old daughter of Street Cry-Vertigineux, who retired last season after her first and only defeat on the track, was bred with Bernardini in February but lost the foal after five weeks.

She was mated with the stallion a second time and a 60-day ultrasound showed she was back in foal.

Zenyatta was sent to the breeding barn after a short but spectacular career in which she established herself as one of America’s best mares.

She won her first 19 races, including the 2009 Breeders Cup, only to spoil her perfect record when she was beaten by Blame in her 20th and final race, at the 2010 Breeders Cup in Kentucky.

Her performances on the track endeared her to millions of Americans who do not normally follow racing and helped raise the profile of racing.
