Alpine Sky travels to Kentucky and cameras will be on Memento dOro and filly

Yesterday morning Alpine Sky said farewell to New York and the paddocks at Old Tavern Farm for a couple of months. She traveled to Kentucky to be rebred. Greg Daley and Trina Pasckvale explained that there is a lot of monitoring that happens to ensure the mare is healthy to breed again. All looked good for her to travel, but we will miss seeing her at Old Tavern Farm. 

For the next week or so, the cameras will be on Memento D'Oro (the participating mare from Foal Patrol season 1) and her Empire Maker filly. If you want to learn more about this mare along with her Bodemeister foal from season 1, visit her page here. She is a wonderful mom who is very calm and loving. 

The cameras will be readjusted to stay on their paddock. Below is a video of them together in the field during a light spring rain. Thanks for following!

From Old Tavern Farm: It is with very heavy hearts that we share with you that Alpine Sky ‘20 has passed away. While every effort was exhausted, there was no longer a viable option to save his life. Old Tavern Farm would like to thank Dr. Rings, Dr. Tasse and Dr. Dern as well as all the staff at Rood & Riddle for their care throughout his illness. We would also like to thank the National Museum of Racing & Hall of Fame and all the fans of Foal Patrol - we appreciate all the well wishes we received from you all. Alpine Sky is here at the farm and is adjusting well. We look forward to sharing updates on the farm soon. 

The cameras will stream on the paddock for the time being. We ask that you kindly respect the privacy of Old Tavern Farm staff. If you have any questions, please contact the Museum directly at
