Alpine Sky, a 7-year-old dark bay daughter of Indian Charlie owned by Old Tavern Farm, 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.
Alpine Sky is out of the Lemon Drop Kid mare Alpine Garden. Consigned by Gainesway, Alpine Sky was purchased for $600,000 at the 2013 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select Yearling Sale. Racing from 2015 through 2018, Alpine Sky won or placed in 10 of her 22 career starts with earnings of $179,472. She broke her maiden on Oct. 1, 2016 at Laurel Park and also won at Delaware, Gulfstream, and Aqueduct.
Alpine Sky is in foal to More Than Ready with an expected foaling date of April 21, 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.
