Zenyatta is a large, dark bay mare that is owned by the Moss’ and love by millions all over the world. She started her career in 2007 and by 2008 she was being ridden by Mike Smith was starting to get attention as the big mare that could beat the boys. She retired, with just one loss, her final race in which she came in second to Blame, at the Breeders Cup Classic.
