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 photos you will find a few of her (the grey mare) and her new foal, a colt by Spendthrift Sire, Brody’s Cause! Their days consist of 8 or more hours outside with their new paddock mates and inside the barn all night. Prince B has grown quickly and developed his own unique personality. Paul, our assistant broodmare manager and resident peppermint-giver (he is in the photos below), says Prince B is “fearless, brave…he runs around the field as though he’s asking everyone ‘you’ve heard of me, right?’ He owns the place.”

Also, a HUGE thank you to everyone who submitted a name for Prince B’s naming competition! We have had an overwhelming amount of submissions and are going through all of them. We will have updates on the contest soon. For now, enjoy the photos and we will post again soon!

    Thanks for the pictures I just pray these foals get good owners when they go to sale and that they are always loved

  • deana dameron says:

    Beholder looks like she watches over him as he is roaming about. She appears to be a good mother. Little Mo is a cutie pie who has an adventuresome spirit. Has Papa Mandela met him yet? I am sure Queen B would love to show him off to him. Wishing health and happiness to both Dams and foals. I really enjoy seeing the posts, thanks so much for sharing them with us.

    BEHOLDER’s MO colt, I think, is one of 2018’s most exciting foals!!! All of the MO’s are brave and fearless! From the 1st video everyone could see he had a huge stride! I bet he can really cover some ground now! Lol keep up Mama, look how fast I am!!!

    Beholder and her colt are truly a gift to all of us who loved her at the races. Thank you so much for sharing her new life and the little guy is just too, too cute.

  • Patricia Diers says:

    I wish you all the best from him. Beholder is one of my all time favorite race mares. I hope she lives a long and production life–May all her progeny be winners!
