Sad. I wonder if one of them retains rights to the racing stable, the breeding stock and/or they get to pick and choose?

I honestly have half wondered if this is why Coz is still training/running. He's an asset to be divided in the divorce (which tbh, he needs to be gelded and made into a nice hunter pony).

Holy moly, imagine if as part of the divorce settlement they have to sell Zenyatta. I mean, so far she's been a flop as a producer (breeding her to the wrong stallions, imho), but as a collectors item? Get your checkbook out, Mandy!!!!

Ann has been so involved with Zen that I suspect that she will ask for the right to continue visiting 'her' big mare whenever she wishes. Since the blog on Z's website has already announced that Ann will continue to oversee that site, I presume we will continue getting her updates...and photos of her loving on the Big Z. ;)
That latest photo with the filly shows an attractive youngster, although the little one seems to have inherited her mom's looonnnng head.

a longer head means her nose gets to the wire first, right? :lol: :lol:

If Jerry and Ann married after he had made his fortune with A&M, I suspect that there will be little haggling about who gets what. Because prenup. :oops:

A&M was founded in 1962. I don't know when Jerry and Ann married.

I would assume they will continue to co-own Zenyatta. Not sure if they will own her offspring individually (flip flop each foal) or co-own as well. I can't see either of them handing over full ownership over anything Zenyatta related.

Still holding out hope for Uncle Mo. what does she match up to City Zip with? Maybe even Speightstown.


As much as it would make me fangirl squeal, Uncle Mo is too big for her.


Z is what? 17 hands or so. She's a pretty big girl with substance.

Soundness issues aside, if he's to big for her, then wouldn't he definitely be to big for say... American Cleopatra?

IIRC, Z is 17.2, and her racing weight was over 1,250.
She is called The Big Mare for good reasons. :lol:

Z is too tall and too big to be bred to another massive horse. The foal would be Warmblood sized.

I don't know AC's height and weight. Can't say for sure if it's a smart idea or not.

Sorry to hear they are divorcing, kind of surprised even though it looked like they were divesting their interest in their stock, the guy is 82 (why bother?), gonna assume he's got something else going on - glad to see Ann will keep updating on Z. Regardless of what's going on, they really have been great to the fans of their horses.

Unless she has a few more, I seriously doubt any of her sons will be gelded or sold (unless maybe in partnership at stud).
