SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — Season 5 of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s popular live webcam series Foal Patrol is now available online at www.foalpatrol.com.

Foal Patrol is a one-of-a-kind collection of live cameras following the daily activities of in-foal mares produced by the National Museum of Racing. Millions of people throughout the world have viewed the popular webcam program since its inaugural season in 2018.


The Foal Patrol Season 5 participants are: Elate (in foal to Speightstown at Claiborne Farm, Paris, Ky.), Spanish Bunny (in foal to Uncle Mo at Gainesway Farm, Lexington, Ky.), Traveling Tiger (in foal to Audible at Safari North at Pauls Mill Farm, Versailles, Ky.), Repeta (in foal to Volatile at Three Chimneys Farm, Versailles, Ky.), and Floripa (in foal to Vekoma at Old Tavern Farm, Saratoga Springs, N.Y.). Live footage will expand as the mares approach their expected foaling dates.

Season 5 will feature a new education site at www.foalpatrol.com/education to connect Foal Patrol fans of all ages to online resources, videos, and podcasts that begin with breeding and reproduction and span the life of the thoroughbred, including Just for Kids; our Insights videos for youth considering industry careers; online resources about the health and care of the horse; and the platform of Your Stories for viewers’ photo submissions and stories of how Foal Patrol has inspired them. New content will be added to the site weekly from January through June.

A variety of thoroughbred industry partners have committed to supporting Foal Patrol’s educational efforts with regular content and support throughout Season 5.

“One of the many wonderful things about the sport of racing is that it has a great history of its industry partners working together to make projects such as Foal Patrol as successful as possible,” said Cate Masterson, director of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. “We’ve received nothing but positive responses from within the racing community about Foal Patrol and we are so grateful for everyone’s contributions to the program.”
