It’s no joke – Zenyatta foals a colt

Zenyatta and Tapit colt, born April 1, 2013.
Zenyatta’s colt was born on her birthday — April 1. Doesn’t she look like a great mother?

Zenyatta, the 2010 Horse of the Year, foaled a colt by top sire Tapit on April 1 at 11:47 p.m. EDT at Lane’s End Farm near Lexington. Coincidentally, it is also Zenyatta’s birthday.

The colt, which is a leggy chestnut with a blaze like Zenyatta’s, was standing on his own by 12:18 a.m. and nursing within the hour. He is estimated to weigh 145 lbs.
