Elate delivers a colt by Speightstown at Claiborne Farm as part of
National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s Foal Patrol Season 5
Elate, an 8-year-old mare owned by Claiborne Farm and Adele B. Dilschneider, delivered a colt by stallion Speightstown at Claiborne in Paris, Ky., at 1:15 a.m. on March 11. The foal was the third this season for the Foal Patrol program, the popular webcam series from the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame that is now in its fifth season. A clip of the foaling from the livestream footage is available at foalpatrol.com/horses/elate, and a compilation of video clips of the foaling process narrated by Claiborne’s Equine Operations Manager, Mary Ormsby, has also been posted to the site.
Elate delivered the colt two days ahead of her expected March 13 foaling date. The delivery went smoothly and both mare and foal are doing well. Elate is one of five mares participating in Season 5. Previously, Traveling Tiger at Safari North Farm at Pauls Mill delivered her filly by Audible in January and Spanish Bunny delivered her colt by Uncle Mo in February at Gainesway Farm. Also participating this season is Repeta at Three Chimneys Farm (March 31) and Floripa at Old Tavern Farm (May 5).
Foal Patrol is a one-of-a-kind interactive web project of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame that debuted in 2018. Programming includes a collection of live cameras where people can view real-time streams of in-foal mares, as well as numerous educational aspects on the educational site at foalpatrol.com/education. The live camera feeds will be available according to each horse’s daily schedule, set by the farm.
