Prince of the Paddock

Dear Fans, It’s been raining for weeks here in the Bluegrass but we are finally seeing some sunshine! With that said, Beholder and Prince B have greatly enjoyed their time rolling around in the mud. The duo have officially been upgraded and moved to their large paddock with a buddy, Coup de Coeur. In the Prince of the Paddock

Queen B and her Prince!

Dear fans, It’s a colt! Beholder welcomed her first foal, a bay colt by Uncle Mo, on January 23rd in the late evening. Both mare and foal are doing great and Queen B has taken to motherhood like the champ she is. They spent the first week in our foaling barn but have now graduated Queen B and her Prince!

Full Circle Moment

Dear Fans, Wow, what a year 2017 was for Beholder and our incredible team around her! From the joy of announcing her in foal to Uncle Mo to hosting Friday morning Beholder tours, we’ve been very busy. As we kick off 2018, we are reminiscing on this full-circle moment. Beholder became an integral part of Full Circle Moment

Beholder Settling in Well.

Retirement looks good on Beholder. Since her arrival at Spendthrift on November 21st, Queen B has been adjusting quite well to farm life.

The rolling pastures set with dark fences act as the perfect backdrop to the life of Beholder Settling in Well.

Fairytale endings, especially in horse racing, are rare events. Beholder is, as she always is, an exception to the norm. Her swan song in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff will perhaps go down as one of the greatest races of all time. To relive greatness, Beholder entered the gates with one of the most historic fields Fairytale Ending for Beholder.
