I have it on good authority that Zenyatta's foal will be a filly. Exciting!!!

When vets perform ultrasounds they have to specifically look for the gender of the foal. So no one knows since the Mosses don't fetal sex their mares.
Who would know? Well, any of the vets that have been attending to her would know. Ultra sounds show the sex of the foal. They (the vets) would of course MEAN to keep the confidentiality "agreement" but all that would have to happen is for them to tell ONE person (or to have someone overhear a supposed "private" conversation) and, well, we all know that once you tell ONE person a secret is no longer a secret. Big news like this that EVERYONE is after is almost impossible to keep -- I am surprised that BabyZ12 being a colt wasn't "outed" before Zenny foaled him.
Please be brave about voicing your opinion about something on the Forum. Some folks are just really passionate about their feelings and if they disagree with somebody else, thats OK in my book. I remember a while back when I got tired of all the negativity towards Rachel from some staunch Zenny fans when we all posted on the board set up by Dotty. Some the stuff was just downright mean. I reminded all that the two fabulous ladies NEVER met and never raced against each other; all the animosity was strictly pushed by the fans. These beautiful girls were and are still wonderful in their own right. So hang in there, JLG2013.
