Coolmore welcomes sister to Zenyatta

Coolmore Stud mare Vertigineux (Kris S) has foaled a full-brother to Zenyatta.

The Street Cry colt was born at Coolmore’s USA base at Ashford Stud in Kentucky.  “He’s a good quality bay colt,” stud manager Dermot Ryan said.  “Both mare and foal are doing well.”

Besides her champion daughter, 18-year-old Vertigineux has foaled Group 1 millionaire mare Balance (Thunder Gulch), stakes winning filly Where’s Bailey (Aljabr), winning gelding Souper Spectacular (Giant’s Causeway) and unbeaten filly Eblouissante (Bernardini).

Coolmore purchased Vertigineux from Eric Kronfeld’s Maverick Productions in a private deal in 2009.  She has a 3yo filly and a 2yo filly by Henrythenavigator.
