SARATOGA SPRINGS — Bird Town, a mare owned by Marylou Whitney and the recordholder for the fastest Kentucky Oaks of all time, delivered the seventh foal of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s Foal Patrol project on May 3 at 2:10 a.m. at Gainesway Farm in Kentucky. The foal, a filly by Empire Maker, was a few days past her expected due date of April 26. Bird Town, a multiple Grade 1 winner during her racing career, and the foal are both in excellent health. The live feed of Bird Town and her foal can be viewed at www.foalpatrol.com. “It’s great to welcome Bird Town’s foal,” said Cathy Marino, director of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. “We want to thank Marylou Whitney and her husband, John Hendrickson, for allowing all of us fans the opportunity to get to know Bird Town as part of the Foal Patrol project. We look forward to seeing this filly develop and hopefully become a great racehorse like her mother,” Marino said. The final Foal Patrol mare scheduled to deliver is Arravale at Chanteclair Farm in Kentucky. Owned by Merriebelle Stable and in foal to Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, Arravale is expected to give birth around May 24.
