Presented by the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, Foal Patrol is a one-of-a-kind live stream interactive web project. Foal Patrol is the brainchild of the Museum’s President, John Hendrickson, and his late wife, the renowned philanthropist and thoroughbred owner Marylou Whitney. With the goals of gaining new fans and engaging existing racing enthusiasts, Foal Patrol allows viewers to get an “up close and personal” look at the lives of the magnificent equine athletes that it features. During Seasons 1 and 2, viewers were given unprecedented insight into the lives of in-foal mares and a stallion, with the beauty and tranquility of their farms as the backdrop. As Mr. Hendrickson has said, “… once you see a foal born, you will never be the same.”
We hope that Seasons 1 and 2 gave fans and followers the thrill of witnessing the lives of these horses while making it fun to learn about what’s involved with their care. Season 3 continues the tradition of live camera feeds following each horse according to its daily schedule (found on each horse’s webpage). As a mare’s expected foaling date approaches, its daily schedule will be adjusted, and the hours of its live camera feed will be extended. We invite you to enjoy the experience of getting to know these wonderful horses!
