  • I'm so excited for her Street Cry baby! To have a full sibling to Zenny would be spectacular!
  • I think Kris S was also Uncle Mo's grandpa....

    Full brother to Zenyatta foaled at Ashford
    By Nicole Russo Daily Racing Form/Breeding News 04/19/2013 2:26PM
    A full brother to 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta was foaled April 9 at Coolmore's Ashford Stud near Versailles, Ky.
    The Street Cry colt is out of the winning Kris S. mare Vertigineux, Kentucky's Broodmare of the Year in 2008. The mare was privately purchased by Coolmore from breeder Eric Kronfeld in the fall of 2008.
    "He's a good-quality bay colt, both mare and foal are doing well," Ashford Stud manager Dermot Ryan said.

    Rest in Peace, Vertigineux.
    Coolmore America confirmed that she passed away 2 years ago.
    “Vertigineux hemorrhaged and died after foaling two years ago . (2013)
    Regards”
    Thank you to Allie in Texas for sharing the information

    He must have been awhile after she foaled, given the pics of her and Monty grazing.
  • If true, yes. Makes no sense to me. The picture of the two was labeled that he was 10 days old, if I remember correctly.
  • Vertigineux' grand-daughter, She's Not Here (out of Where's Bailey) finished 1st by 1 1/2 lengths, on May 30, 2015, at CHURCHILL DOWNS in Race 6.

    She's Not Here ( Street Cry (IRE) - Where's Bailey, by Aljabr)
  • Oh, that's good to hear. Another one of Zenny's half-sisters, or half-nieces was also bred to Street Cry. Can't remember which one. I think it was recently--from his last crop.

    And where are Z's two half sibs by Pioneer oftheNile, Harley Rose and Pressurizing? No works since last year at Fair Hill.

    They're by Henrythenavigator, not Pioneer of the Nile.

    Harley Rose is at Belmont with John Sherrifs. I thought Pressurizing was in Australia.

  • KMMKMM Member
    Sorry, you are right. Two boat names. I have PofN in my mind because of AP. Brain fart. Have same owner, I believe.
  • KMMKMM Member
    They were both putting in works at Fair Hill in spring of 2014. I don't know whose care they were under there.
  • EliRoseEliRose Member
    Yep, Harley Rose is still in training at Belmont. Think she has the same groom as Coz. He's posted pictures with her. Pretty pretty mare.
  • KMMKMM Member
    Can you provide pics or link?
  • EliRoseEliRose Member
    They're on his personal FB, so I am not comfortable posting them. You can friend him though - Omar Velez. He really just has headshots of her. Says she is a sweety pie, and she has a super kind eye. Coz absolutely FAWNS over the guy!

    Just looked and he has a cute selfie with Zi now too :)
