So sorry to hear about Zenda. God, how I hate laminitis. May her legacy carry on through her babies.

There is a notation on her page at pedigreequery.com that says she died "at the beginning of 2019." Her Horse Racing Nation page says "deceased" ( https://www.horseracingnation.com/horse ... harge_Lady ). It's shocking that there is no official news of her passing. She was a great and an extremely influential broodmare. RIP Lady. Thank you for all you've done for Thoroughbred bloodlines. Take Charge Lady in a photo taken in 2014:

the poster who mentioned it said she learned in Nov 2018, so it's been longer than that (granted, that's PQ for ya)

I haven't heard any news about Zenyatta being bred for a 2020 foal, but it's possible they just haven't announced it yet. She wasn't bred for a 2019 foal. She aborted her 2018 Into Mischief foal I think because of placentitis. I guess we keep waiting.

Somewhere back on this board I can remember a post that she was not bred for this year. I have not heard anything about this year.

I know Ann likes late foals, so she is probably being bred for an April or May edition.
I wanna do bad things with you.

yeah just saw that tweet too. trying to get in touch w Coolmore/Ashford, hopefully it gets straightened out. weird to have this confusion about something as serious as a death (as opposed to like, who she was bred to/what sex foal she had).
