An update from New Money Honey's owners, e5 Racing Thoroughbreds:
"We are happy to announce the birth of New Money Honey '20 (War Front - New Money Honey by Medaglia d'Oro). As a participant in The National Museum of Racing And Hall of Fame, Foal Patrol, we all expected to share the birth live. At approximately 7 am yesterday (March 10), the Farm Manager at Indian Creek, called the reproductive specialist to check on the mare. Everything appeared normal, and New Money Honey was turned out in the paddock. A few hours later, the team at Indian Creek decided to bring New Money Honey to Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital for further evaluation. Upon examination, at Rood and Riddle, it was elected to proceed with a cesarean section.
As of this afternoon (March 11) both mare and filly are doing well. The mare has a good appetite and is recovering well from the C-section. The foal is bright and has a good suckle reflex which is encouraging. Milk consumption has increased as the foal strengthens. The mare and foal are slowly being introduced to each other and are in the stall together. The next 72 hours are critical and the mare and foal will remain at the clinic. Prognosis is cautiously optimistic at this point. We want to thank all of her fans for their thoughts and kind messages at this time."
The owners, farm staff and veterinarian team are all focused on caring for these horses and appreciate your respect of their privacy. If you have any questions, please contact the Museum directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will share further updates as they are made available. Thank you for following Foal Patrol.
