I wonder if they changed the angle of the cam in Stopchargingmaria's stall? Last night I could see the top sill where the camera was mounted, and pretty much the entire stall. Now it's angled so that you can't see one corner of the stall, and less of over by the stall door/buckets, and ofc that must be where the filly is sleeping (or she's blocked by mom's butt, LOL).

Unfortunately, they already moved him to the mare and foal barn when I got to work. There is a possibility of two foals being born tonight though!

Thank you for this link, I just love this little guy. He has spirit and spunk in spades.

I hope he has a successful future ahead of him and does his parents proud.

Here are the America's Best Racing foals for the week of Feb. 4. The group includes some foals from Germany. https://www.americasbestracing.net/life ... week-feb-4

This link is a bit off topic since the foals aren't Thoroughbreds. They are mini horse foals, and the page is posted at America's Best Racing. Posting the link just for pure enjoyment. https://www.americasbestracing.net/life ... super-bowl

And this high-flying Lane's End foal is hoot:

Runnymede Farm
2 hrs ·
Foaling season has begun brilliantly at Runnymede with a smashing colt by Quality Road out of a half sister to the dam of G1 winner & multi-millionaire Collected. This handsome bay was born on Saturday, the first foal out of our winning Lonhro mare Koala Queen, who is a loving mother to her son. Congratulations to our partners Peter Callahan and Chris Zinkhan on the new arrival and we can't wait to see him grow. Koala Queen is due to be bred back to More Than Ready; her stakes-winning half brother Woodwin W was by More Than Ready, so this is a nick that works well. Koala Queen also is a half sister to group stakes performers Las Venturas and Deep Sound

Adorable filly, and I'm delighted to see a Deep Impact foaled in England. Wish we had more here in the US. Congratulations to Stacelita on the birth of her beautiful filly, and to all the human connections.

She is owned by Teruya Yoshida, one of the owners of Shadai Stallion Station where Deep Impact stands. I would imagine that they hadn't intended on shipping her back to England once she got to Japan in 2014... until Soul Stirring hit the track - they probably booked a return visit to Frankel the next day! :lol:
