Golden Oak Stables has Zenyatta back in stock just in time to catch the excitement swirling around this proud mare! Breyer’s Zenyatta has been one of their most popular models in a very long time, which is no surprise to anyone! This mare has been heating up the scene with her unbelievable record and lovable personality. She arrived in early December to Lane’s End Farm in Kentucky to start her life as a broodmare, but there’s another Kentucky connection in Z’s history. In 2005 Zenyatta was purchased at the famed Keeneland sale for a mere $60,000 as a yearling!
A few weeks ago Keeneland welcomed horses of all ages to the January horse sale. Horses from all over the country came to be sold to new owners at the famed sale, some of the buyers even coming from Europe and Asia! Thousands of attendees came to Lexington hoping to find their next champion. 1021 horses were sold for a total of over 25 million dollars! The most expensive horse sold topped 1.4 million dollars and is headed to Japan where horse racing has a big following.
Here’s a few sights from the January 2011 sale. Will one of these horses end up as the next Zenyatta? We’ll just have to wait and see!
