An update on New Money Honey and her foal from Indian Creek farm: 

"As of this afternoon (March 12) New Money Honey and foal are both progressing well. The foal is bright, active and has been taken off supportive oxygen therapy. Milk consumption continues to increase without issues.

The mare has been taken off supportive IV fluids without issue. She has a fantastic appetite and manure production is appropriate.These are encouraging signs from both.

On behalf of everyone, we would like to thank everyone for their support and encouraging messages."

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 nmrpgasst@racingmuseum.net

We will share further updates as they are made available. Thank you for following Foal Patrol.

Update on New Money Honey

New Money Honey
March 10th, 2020

After recent activity and signs of labor from New Money Honey, a veterinarian examined her this morning. Although she didn’t present serious issues, the manager at Indian Creek Farm has some concerns about her status. Therefore, with farm team support, she has been transported to a clinic in Kentucky for high-risk foaling management. The farm manager is still optimistic for a positive outcome but wants to be cautious. This decision was made so that if she needs more acute care or assistance with delivery, she will be in the right hands when foaling occurs. At this point, she will stay at the clinic for further monitoring and we will share updates as time allows. As part of this industry, it is top priority to do what is best for the horses to ensure their wellbeing comes first. We appreciate your understanding as New Money Honey and her foal receive the right care.
