Zenyatta blog ending on March 13


Dottie Ingordo-Shirreffs, author of Zenyatta’s “diary” at Zenyatta.com, will put the blog on hiatus after the March 13 post.

Ann and Jerry Moss’s popular 8-year-old mare gave birth to her first foal, a 130-pound Bernardini colt, on March 8. Ingordo-Shirreffs, the Mosses’ racing manager and wife of Zenyatta’s trainer John Shirreffs, said she’s decided to end the diary “because it was full circle of her being a foal and now having a foal.”

“It’s been such an emotional few weeks, you know, and we are so grateful to be at the stage we’re at right now, that Zenny had a beautiful, healthy, lovely, charming colt,” Ingordo-Shirreffs said. “It’s been quite a ride.”

Ingordo-Shirreffs said Zenyatta’s connections haven’t determined yet how they will release any news or updates about the mare and foal, who board at Lane’s End Farm in Versailles, Ky.
