What a looker!!! Foaling Season 2018 got under way the morning of January 11th when we welcomed a bay filly out of longtime farm resident Blondz Away (by Skip Away). She is the very first foal from the first crop of Breeders’ Cup Mile winner Tourist. WinStar Farm stopped by to take some great photos of their stallion’s first foal, which can be seen here: WinStar Farm’s Facebook Post. Congratulations to the breeder of this very sharp filly, Corey and CJ Johnsen’s CJ Thoroughbreds. This foal is bred on the same cross as Blondz Away’s four-year-old, Gold Rush Stakes winner and California Derby-placed Colonel Samsen (by Colonel John). It was great to get the foaling season started off with a nice, healthy baby and a happy mother. This foal is the first of many we are expecting here at Endeavor Farm this year! Check out the first foal announcements for Tourist featured in the BloodHorse and the Paulick Report. She has become quite the celebrity!
So it begins! Endeavor Farm welcomes a beautiful foal out of Blondz Away as the first young whippersnapper of the year. The chestnut filly by Langfuhr was foaled just before midnight on Friday, January 20th. She is a half-sister to current stakes winner Colonel Samsen (by Colonel John). Congratulations to the breeders of this foal, CJ Thoroughbreds & Casner Racing LP. Here’s to a good start to Foaling Season 2017!
