Closing Argument - Debs Pet, By Petionville
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.
About the Owner
Susan Moulton describes Safari North at Pauls Mill Farm as "a spin-off of my Texas Pin-hooking days at Retama Park." Moulton broke yearlings for several years for the Texas, Maryland, and Florida 2-year-old sales, and still holds her Texas trainers license today. Safari North is managed by Debbie First-Ward, and assisted by Moulton's husband, former jockey, Shane Sellers. They are a small operation on 340 acres in Versailles, KY. There are currently twenty mares in house, but Moulton aims to keep that number under ten in the future.
Moulton believes this farm has served to heal many hearts, and is excited to open it to the world through Foal Patrol.
"Shane and I were married here October 12, 2020, and celebrated our future near the bust of my two boys, Charlie and Will, whose passing in 2016 and 2007 briefly interrupted my association with the horse business. But a true horseman always comes home, even after such tragedy. So welcome to our small nursery, where dreams are born, as well as foals." - Susan Moulton
