LEXINGTON Ky. — Miss Chapin, a 20-year-old mare owned by Mrs. Jerry Amerman, delivered a colt by stallion Oscar Performance at 2:23 a.m. on Feb. 26 at Mill Ridge Farm as part of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s Foal Patrol Season 4. This is the first foal of the season delivered on Foal Patrol. Both the mare and foal are healthy and doing well.
Miss Chapin, a daughter of Royal Academy, delivered her Oscar Performance colt eight days after her expected foaling date of Feb. 18. There are four mares participating in Foal Patrol Season 4, as well as the stallion Tapit at Gainesway Farm. The next mare scheduled to deliver is Miss Always Ready at Three Chimneys Farm in Versailles, Ky. Both Janae (Safari North, Versailles, Ky.) and To the Moon Alice (Old Tavern Farm, Saratoga Springs, N.Y.) are scheduled to deliver in April.
Foal Patrol is a one-of-a-kind interactive web project. Season 4 features a collection of live cameras where people can view real-time streams of several mares and their foals and the stallion Tapit. The live camera feeds will be available according to each horse’s daily schedule, set by the farm. For more information, please visit www.foalpatrol.com.
