Season 4 Announcement!

December 21st, 2020

Season 4 of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s popular live webcam series Foal Patrol will debut online at www.foalpatrol.com on Tuesday, Dec. 29.

Season 4 will feature in-foal mares at Mill Ridge Farm, Safari North at Pauls Mill Farm, and Three Chimneys Farm — all based in Kentucky — and Old Tavern Farm in New York. Season 4 will also feature champion sire Tapit at Gainesway Farm in Kentucky.

Foal Patrol is a one-of-a-kind collection of live cameras following the daily activities of in-foal mares produced by the National Museum of Racing. Millions of people throughout the world have viewed the popular webcam program since its initial launch in late 2017.

Here is a closer look at the Foal Patrol Season 4 participants:

Janae (mare, Safari North at Pauls Mill Farm, Versailles, Ky.)

In foal to Malibu Moon, Janae is a 5-year-old bay daughter of Closing Argument out of the Petionville mare Debs Pet. Bred in Louisiana by Jim and Sue Harris, Janae won two of seven career races and was in the money two other occasions. Both of her wins, including the Texas Thoroughbred Futurity, took place at Lone Star Park.

Owned by Susan Moulton, Janae produced a filly by Mizzen Mast in 2019 and a filly by Daredevil in 2020. Janae’s foal by Malibu Moon has an expected due date of April 12, 2021.

Miss Always Ready (mare, Three Chimneys Farm, Versailles, Ky.)

In foal to Palace Malice, Miss Always Ready is an 8-year-old dark bay daughter of More Than Ready out of the Dehere mare Miss Seffens. Bred in Kentucky by Santucket Stables, she was purchased by Three Chimneys at the Keeneland April 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale in 2014. During her racing career, Miss Always Ready won once from five starts, earning her lone victory in October 2014 at Belmont Park.

Miss Always Ready is expected to deliver her foal in late March/early April 2021. The foal will be a full sibling to Structor, winner of the 2019 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf. Structor was Miss Always Ready’s first foal. She has since given birth to fillies by Palace Malice (2019) and Gun Runner (2020).

Miss Chapin (mare, Mill Ridge Farm, Lexington, Ky.)

In foal to Oscar Performance, Miss Chapin is a 19-year-old bay daughter of Royal Academy out of the Akarad (FR) mare Society Dream (FR). Bred in Kentucky by Jerome and John Ammerman, Miss Chapin won her lone career start at Del Mar in 2004.

Miss Chapin is the dam of Grade 1 winner Coffee Clique and Grade 2 winner Admission Office, who is still active on the track. Miss Chapin’s foal by Oscar Performance has an expected due date of February 18, 2021.

To the Moon Alice (mare, Old Tavern Farm, Saratoga Springs, N.Y.)

In foal to Uncle Mo, To the Moon Alice is a 7-year-old dark bay daughter of Malibu Moon out of the Partner’s Hero mare Love Match. Bred in Kentucky by Hare Forest Farm, she was purchased by Old Tavern Farm at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale in 2017. To the Moon Alice made only two starts in her brief racing career in 2016. She finished third in her career debut at Gulfstream Park and was sixth in her only other race, which took place at Belmont.

To the Moon Alice has had three foals — all of which are owned by Old Tavern Farm — colts by Maclean’s Music, Will Take Charge, and Ghostzapper. To the Moon Alice’s fourth foal has an expected due date of April 20, 2021.

Tapit (featured stallion, Gainesway Farm, Lexington, Ky.)

One of the most influential and breed-shaping stallions of the past half-century, Tapit has sired 27 grade 1 winners, 31 yearlings to bring $1 million or more at auction, and earners of more than $162 million on the racetrack. He stands at historic Gainesway for a 2021 fee of $185,000.

To date, Tapit has sired 23 percent black-type horses, 138 overall stakes winners (86 graded), eight Eclipse Award winners, and six Breeders’ Cup winners. His 2020 standouts include undefeated Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Essential Quality. Tapit has been North America’s leading sire three times.

Memento d'Oro18, by Bodemeister out of Memento d'Oro, has received the name of Seahorse d'Oro. Old Tavern Farm, where she resides, held a naming contest and the staff chose the name from many submissions to reflect her lineage and head marking. We all look forward to the start of her racing career.

Old Tavern Farm hosted a virtual farm tour in collaboration with the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. The recording of that tour is below with participants of Foal Patrol including Seahorse d'Oro, Comme Chez Soi19 and Alpine Sky.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Naming Contest for the Two-Year-Old Filly by Bodemeister out of Memento d'Oro at Old Tavern Farm. 

Seahorse d’Oro is the winner! Old Tavern Farm received over 600 creative submissions and ultimately felt that Seahorse d’Oro encompassed her lineage and head marking best. We all look forward to the start of her career.

If you were unable to watch the Old Tavern virtual farm tour last Friday, we will be sharing the recording soon. Stay tuned!
