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!
Foaling season started with a bang in 2015 with three foals hitting the ground in less than 36 hours! The first foal of the year was a dark bay filly by Caleb’s Posse out of I’marocketgirl which arrived the evening of January 20th. Less than two hours later a chestnut filly by Jimmy Creed out of Said and Done was welcomed into this world. In the wee hours of the morning on January 22nd the mare Passionista delivered a bay filly by Old Fashioned. It’s a filly party! All mothers and babies are happy and healthy. Congratulations to the breeders of these beautiful horses. Here’s to a great start to the year!
