A full brother to 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta was foaled April 9 at Ashford Stud in Lexington, Ky., according to Coolmore, who owns broodmare Vertigineux.
“Vertigineux foaled a brother to Zenyatta at Ashford Stud on April 9,” Coolmore said on Facebook last Friday.
Dermot Ryan, who manages Coolmore’s Ashford Stud in Kentucky said, “He’s a good quality bay colt, and both mare and foal are doing well.”
Along with Zenyatta (by Street Cry), blue hen mare Vertigineux, who was voted Broodmare of the Year in 2009, has also produced multiple grade I winner Balance (by Thunder Gulch) and the thus far unbeaten Eblouissante (by Bernardini).
