I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Zenyatta's filly is adorable and very pretty, but that right front leg looks awfully light in bone. Very slender compared to the left front. For those accustomed to looking at foals, is this just a lighting artifact in two of the photos? Or if that leg really is lighter boned, is that something that will correct itself over time? Like all Zenyatta fans, I'm so hoping this baby grows into a successful racehorse and/or broodmare some day.

If you go back and look at pics from a few weeks ago, everything IMO looks normal? I think it might just be the angle of some of the more recent photos...

i see what you're seeing, but the one with her rearing up, it looks fine, so i do think it's the angle and goofy foal proportions making it look weird. and, as said, the older pics look good too. no worries =)

Thanks Lurkey and Sweettalk. I appreciate your replies and reassurance. That filly is precious in more than one meaning of the word, so I'm glad to know all is well with her.

Any ideas if Z was bred this year or given the year off? Who will they choose in 2018?

If Caravaggio gets retired at the end of this year (which could be possible, as Coolmore really needs to find a Scat Daddy son to fill his big shoes), it could be very interesting to see her matched with a horse like that, who has speed to burn. And being out of a Holy Bull mare might give him a layer of stamina.

They already have No Nay Never, a G1 winning sprinter son of Scat Daddy, though I still wouldnt be surprised if Caravaggio did get retired at the end of the year.

IMHO, Caravaggio is a better horse on the track, in his conformation and I like his pedigree better. Feeling nostalgic about Holy Bull, maybe, but hasn't HB turned out to be a very good broodmare sire?

Kaitlin Free is a fan who posts a lot on horseracingnation, I would wait until an official post from Team Zenyatta/Bloodhorse/Spendthrift before deciding it is gospel.

mostly i'm baffled because i thought they were giving her the year off. interesting to see if she's right or not. truenicks gives it a B+ if anyone's interested.

I figured Jerry just said that she was getting a year off to keep people off their backs.

Zenyatta's offspring need speed. Into Mischief is a great source.

If true, it's nice to see a little imagination/thoughtfulness in play. They're not breeding to sell, why not look outside the top flavours for something that may nick better.
