ARCADIA, Calif. – A poster of Zenyatta and her recently born first foal, a colt by Bernardini, will be given away at Santa Anita on Saturday as part of what the track is calling a “baby shower.”

In addition to the poster, members of Zenyatta’s inner circle – expected to include owners Jerry and Ann Moss, trainer John Shirreffs, and jockey Mike Smith – will be available for an autograph session beginning at 11:30 a.m., one hour before first post.

Santa Anita is asking that donations for the autographs be made to Canter or Old Friends Farm, organizations that care for horses after they are done racing.

Zenyatta, the 2010 Horse of the Year and winner of 19 or 20 starts, scored the biggest victory of her career at Santa Anita, in the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Classic.
