Zenyatta, seen here with her April 20 foal by War Front, will not be bred in 2014.

Zenyatta, the 2010 Horse of the Year, will not be bred in 2014, according to a news release on the horse’s official website.

The 10-year-old Street Cry mare has produced three foals, most recently giving birth to a War Front filly on April 20. She foaled Cozmic One, a Bernardini colt, in 2012 and the Tapit colt Ziconic in 2013.

Owned by Jerry and Ann Moss, Zenyatta has resided at Lane’s End in Versailles, Ky. for her entire broodmare career.

“From the start, Zenyatta’s happiness and well-being has been our top priority,” the website release read. “Following the birth of her perfect new filly, we have decided to honor her by giving her a year off from foaling.

“Zenyatta continues to be in good health and excellent condition,” the release continued. “She will have time to rest, mentally and physically, and to enjoy being a horse in one of the most beautiful places in the country.”

Zenyatta has been one of North America’s most watched broodmares following an on-track body of work that included 19 consecutive wins, including the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Classic, and a narrow defeat in the 2010 Classic to finish her career. In addition to 2010 Horse of the Year honors, Zenyatta also earned Eclipse Awards as champion older mare each year from 2008 to 2010.
