The 2014 filly is just beautiful. Very elegant and strong, just like Zenyatta. How could anyone not love her?
The 2013 colt looks like a little firecracker.
All of her foals are very different, I am curious if she is throwing to the stallions.

That is Life is Sweet's colt by Tapit.

Ziconic is crazy handsome and Z Princess is such a lovely filly.

"All of her foals are very different, I am curious if she is throwing to the stallions."

IMO, she is. At least, enough so that you can tell by looking at the foals which one is the Bernardini, which is the Tapit and which is the War Front, even if you didn't know ahead of time. She is stamping herself on them, I think, in their balance, strength and bone. And the ears, of course. :lol:

Wholeheartedly agree. Wow, Ziconic is a looker though. If he runs half as well as he looks....... :!:

Z Princess isn't her official name, is it?

No that's just the nickname they gave her instead of calling her Z14.

I think it means that the physical type of each foal leans more toward the stallion that sired each foal, but Zen's offspring are getting temperament, etc. from her. I mean, Coz looks very much like Bernardini...refined, lanky, etc. Ziconic is much more muscled...looks a lot like other Tapit offspring. Princess is the closest to looking like Zen, but I'm not familiar with a body type of War Front's offspring to compare.

War Front throws all kinds. Definitely the filly looks the most like Zenyatta. I think the 2 boys are very much representative of the sire, at least physically. At least, that is my opinion. I posed the question, simply because I've only seen the photos and none of them in person.
Hopefully the Tapit doesn't have a Tapit mind.
