To the Moon Alice delivers a filly by Uncle Mo at Old Tavern Farm as part of National Museum of Racing’s Foal Patrol Season 4
SARATOGA SPRINGS, — To the Moon Alice, an 8-year-old mare owned by Old Tavern Farm, delivered a filly by stallion Uncle Mo at 2 a.m. on April 7 at Old Tavern as part of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s Foal Patrol Season 4. Both the mare and foal are healthy and doing well. This is the second foal of the season delivered on Foal Patrol, following Miss Chapin colt by Oscar Performance at Mill Ridge in Kentucky on Feb. 26.
To the Moon Alice is a dark bay daughter of Malibu Moon out of the Partner’s Hero mare Love Match. Bred in Kentucky by Hare Forest Farm, she was purchased by Old Tavern Farm at the Keeneland November Breeding Stick Sale in 2017. This is her fourth foal.
Established in 2016, Old Tavern Farm is a private boutique thoroughbred-breeding farm. Founded on the former site of Palmer’s Maple Shade Farm in Saratoga Springs, New York, the name Old Tavern was derived from the 1800s tavern that once graced the property.
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 (in foal to Palace Malice) at Three Chimneys Farm in Versailles, Ky., who is overdue her expected foaling date of March 30. The fourth mare is Janae (Safari North, Versailles, Ky.), who is in foal to Malibu Moon with an expected foaling date of April 12.
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.
