From the hill

Traveling Tiger
June 28th, 2022

Enjoy the final clip of the season of Traveling Tiger 22 with her group of weanlings in one of their favorite places - the top of the hill in their field at Safari North. You'll spot "Tiger" early on, as she's the only redhead in the group and you can't miss that lovely blaze. Our Foal Patrol Season 5 mascot, Smokey, is still often on hand at the farm, and he makes a special appearance with the weanlings.  

Turned out with other mares who also delivered early in the 2022 season, Traveling Tiger is progressing well. Foal Patrol thanks the staff at Safari North for all they do every day to care for their horses, and your Foal Patrol fans are grateful to you for sharing the daily lives of Traveling Tiger and our first Season 5 foal, "Tiger," with the world. Thank you, and we wish the farm, your team, and your horses the very best.


Spanish Bunny
June 27th, 2022

We are happy to share that Spanish Bunny was bred to Karakontie and is a little over 30 days into her pregnancy. Her previous foals by Karakontie include multiple graded stakes placed Spanish Loveaffair, foaled in 2018, and multiple graded stakes winner Spendarella, foaled in 2019. Spendarella finished second in her most recent start on June 17 in the Grade 1 Coronation Stakes at Ascot, bringing the filly's record to three wins and one second from four starts and earnings of more than $400,000. 

We extend our congratulations to Spanish Bunny, and all her Foal Patrol fans wish her the very best as she carries another Karakontie foal this year. Click here for more information on Karakontie.

Thank You!

June 27th, 2022

With 4 million views and impressions this year and fans of all ages from every state and 70 countries, we thank you for a tremendous fifth and final season of Foal Patrol.

After a groundbreaking five-year run, the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s popular Foal Patrol program is being retired, having achieved its goals of educating and entertaining millions of people around the world about Thoroughbred breeding and the lifecycle of a racehorse. Foal Patrol, a one-of-a-kind collection of live web cameras, provided an online educational platform and delivered real-time videos into homes, classrooms, and various businesses throughout the world. The Museum’s mission was to extend through computer, tablet, and phone screens to reach the broadest possible audience and provide education about Thoroughbred racing from before birth through aftercare.

We are proud of what we accomplished in the past five seasons, and we thank the farms for their participation and sponsorship of the program, our industry partners for great content and promotional support, and Foal Patrol's loyal fans for engaging and asking important questions.

We invite Foal Patrol fans to visit for upcoming Museum programs. Thank you!
