New Money Honey, a 5-year-old bay daughter of Medaglia d’Oro owned by e Five Racing, will be on the roster of featured horses for the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s Foal Patrol Season 3, which will debut online Friday, Dec. 27 at www.foalpatrol.com. The live stream will coincide with a special free kickoff event at the Museum that day, the family-friendly “Foal Patrol Kids!” open house, from 10 a.m. to noon.
The first two seasons of Foal Patrol, a one-of-a-kind collection of live cameras following the daily activities of in-foal mares, had more than three million total views from December 2017 through September 2019. More participating horses will be announced weekly leading up to the debut of Season 3. New Money Honey, who resides at the 1,200-acre Indian Creek Farm near Paris, Ky., is the third mare announced for Foal Patrol Season 3, joining Alpine Sky of Old Tavern Farm near Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and Vaulcluse at Gainesway Farm near Lexington, Ky.
New Money Honey is out of the Distorted Humor mare Weekend Whim. Racing from 2016 through 2018, New Money Honey won five of her 13 career starts with earnings of $1,516,857. As a 2-year-old in 2016, she won the Grade 3 Miss Grillo Stakes at Belmont Park before winning the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies at Santa Anita. Trained by Chad Brown, New Money Honey won the Grade 3 Wonder Again Stakes and the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks as a sophomore.
New Money Honey is in foal to War Front with an expected foaling date of late February 2020.
The “Foal Patrol Kids!” event on Dec. 27 will feature a variety of fun and educational activities plus snacks, giveaways, and special guests. Visitors are invited to explore the Foal Patrol website on Museum iPads to learn about the new in-foal mares, make a craft, ride an equipony and see the HorsePlay!
