Multi-champion and 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta has lost the 2021 filly foal by Lane's End stallion Candy Ride  that she was carrying, Zenyatta.com announced in a Jan. 26 blog post. 

"We at Team Zenyatta and Lane's End Farm are deeply saddened to share that Zenyatta lost her 2021 foal early this year," it read.

"She had been carrying a second Candy Ride filly, and we grieve the loss of this precious life. Thankfully, Zenyatta remains in excellent health and is doing very well."

Zenyatta, a 17-year-old daughter of Street Cry who resides at Lane's End Farm in Versailles, Ky., is the dam of four registered foals, none victorious. Her first two, Cozmic One (Bernardini ) and Ziconic (Tapit ), have both been retired to second careers as off-track Thoroughbreds. She also has a 4-year-old daughter named Zellda (Medaglia d'Oro ) who has not yet raced and a short yearling filly named Zilkha (Candy Ride). Zellda last worked during the summer.

Zellda was Zenyatta's first foal since losing two, both by War Front , in 2014 and 2016. The 2014 filly was euthanized as a weanling after a paddock accident and the 2016 colt died a few days after birth due to complications of meconium aspiration syndrome. In 2018, Zenyatta aborted a foal by Into Mischief .

Trained by John Shirreffs for Jerry and Ann Moss, Zenyatta, champion older mare in 2008-10, and won the Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) in 2009. Her only loss in 20 starts came when second to Blame  in the 2010 Classic.
