Zensational Unbridled's Song / Joke, by Phone trick - 2006

Entered Stud: 2010
  • The first horse in history to win three consecutive grade I sprint events
  • Swept all three major sprints in Southern California: the Triple Bend Invitational (1:21 1/5), the Bing Crosby Handicap (1:08 2/5), and the Pat O'Brien Handicap (1:22 1/5)
  • Earned a triple digit Beyer in each of his victories
  • Posted a 104 Beyer in his maiden victory

Purchased by Zayat Stables for $700,000 at the 2008 Fasig-Tipton Calder sale of selected two-year-olds in training, Zensational won five of eight career starts and earned $669,300 in two racing seasons.

“Having already won three Grade 1 races, we feel that he will be more valuable at stud," owner Ahmed Zayat said. "We are committing a majority of our best mares to Zensational, including the dam of multiple Grade 1 winner and Kentucky Derby [Presented by Yum! Brands (G1)] runner-up Pioneerof the Nile, and we look forward to his chances as a stallion.”

Zensational won four consecutive starts entering the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1), including the Triple Bend Handicap (G1), the Bing Crosby Stakes (G1), and the Pat O’Brien Stakes (G1).

“He’s incredible. He’s a beast. He’s one of the three best horses I’ve ever trained,” trainer Bob Baffert said. “He’s one of the few you get in a lifetime. He is as fast, as powerful, and as good-looking as any horse you will ever see. He breezed faster than really good horses run.”
