Emotional Kitten's halter

Emotional Kitten
April 2nd, 2020

Earlier this week, we received a question about Emotional Kitten and the red tape on her halter. The farm staff informed us on how that is used:

"That is a marker that means Emotional Kitten is on Regumate. The red tape is a way for our staff to easily identify which mares need or do not need Regumate. We put them on it for a number of reasons. One being for Progesterone levels. We test each mare’s Progesterone level (Progesterone is the hormone that helps maintain pregnancy) and if their number is a little low, we will put them on Regumate just to help keep those levels up."

Emotional Kitten is getting closer to foaling. Follow her at Denali Stud and we will continue to share new updates.

Emotional Kitten has made it into the foaling barn as she is four weeks out from her due date. She is doing well and the farm provided the attached video of her enjoying a peppermint in the stall.

Cameras are being adjusted for her new location and she is still being turned out in the morning. Please continue to watch and follow her over the next few weeks and we will share updates on how she is doing.

Emotional Kitten, a 9-year-old chestnut daughter of Kitten’s Joy owned by Gretchen and Roy Jackson’s Lael Stables and residing at Denali Stud near Paris, Ky., 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. Emotional Kitten is the fifth mare announced for Foal Patrol Season 3, joining Magical World at Three Chimneys Farm near Midway, Ky., Alpine Sky of Old Tavern Farm near Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Vaulcluse at Gainesway Farm near Lexington, Ky., and New Money Honey at Indian Creek Farm near Paris, Ky.   

Emotional Kitten was bred in Pennsylvania by Ken and Sarah Ramsey and was campaigned by the Ramseys from 2012 through 2016. Out of the Ghazi mare Silent Emotion, she won or placed in 16 of 29 career starts, including a victory in the Grade 2 Mrs. Revere Stakes at Churchill Downs and Hilltop Stakes at Pimlico.

Emotional Kitten is in foal to Dialed In, with an estimated foaling date of April 25, 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! Gallery to groom a life-sized stuffed animal horse, dress in jockey attire, and investigate objects related to the many careers associated with horse racing. Admission to the Museum will be free throughout the day.
