HRTV PREMIERES "ZENYATTA" DOCUMENTARY ON FRIDAY, NOV. 2

Arcadia, CA, Oct. 29 -- The legendary Zenyatta captivated the racing world during a spectacular career, and HRTV (R), The Network for Horse Sports, will present a poignant documentary on the impeccable mare when "Zenyatta" premieres on Friday, Nov. 2 at 10 p.m. ET.

The half-hour offering is perfectly placed between the two-day, 29th running of the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita Park, a world stage where Zenyatta punctuated her place in the racing history.  While the HRTV broadcast is thirty minutes, it represents part of an in-depth 60-minute DVD that will be released for the holiday season by Zenyatta.com <http://zenyatta.com/> , featuring extensive bonus features and additional footage.
 

Zenyatta's illustrious career totaled 19 wins in 20 starts, Horse of the Year recognition in 2010, and more than $7.3 million in earnings.

Produced for HRTV by the accomplished Kristen Rocky, whose credits include working the 2012 Olympics and Tour de France for NBC, the emotional documentary underscores the essence of Zenyatta's connection with the racing world, and her uncanny ability to cultivate even casual observers.

Affectionately nicknamed "The Queen," many believe she is the most charismatic champion since the wondrous Secretariat.  During her remarkable four-year racing campaign, Zenyatta's "fan club" seemed to quickly blossom and grow exponentially with each impressive victory.

Zenyatta's connections -- owners, Jerry and Ann Moss, along with trainer John Shirreffs, racing manager Dottie Ingordo-Shirreffs, and jockey Mike Smith -- are interviewed extensively and offer their candid, heartfelt recollections on a once-in-a-lifetime journey experience with racing royalty.

From the daughter of Street Cry's undistinguished presence in the sales ring, to wins that snowballed into Zenyatta becoming a racing immortal, to a short-lived retirement, to Zenyatta's first foal, the Zenyatta team witnessed the making of a superstar from the inside -- and cherished every minute.

Also included in the documentary are exercise rider Steve Willard, and erstwhile groom Mario Espinoza.
