Hall Of Famer Ashado To Be Featured In National Museum Of Racing’s Foal Patrol Season 3

Hall of Fame member Ashado, a two-time Eclipse Award winner, will be on the roster of featured horses for the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s Foal Patrol Season 3, which will debut online Friday, Dec. 27 at www.foalpatrol.com.

The live stream will coincide with a special free kickoff event at the Museum that day, the family-friendly “Foal Patrol Kids!” open house, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Campaigned by Starlight Racing in partnership with Johns Martin and Paul Saylor, Ashado was bred in Kentucky by Aaron and Marie Jones and trained by Todd Pletcher. Racing from 2003 through 2005, Ashado won 12 of 21 starts and earned more than $3.9 million.

A dark bay daughter of Saint Ballado out of the Mari’s Book mare Goulash, Ashado won the Eclipse Award for champion 3-Year-Old filly in 2004. That year, she won the Kentucky Oaks, Coaching Club American Oaks, Fair Grounds Oaks, Cotillion Handicap, and Breeders’ Cup Distaff. As a 4-year-old, Ashado won the Eclipse Award for champion older mare. Her wins in 2005 included the Ogden Phipps Handicap, Go for Wand Handicap, and Beldame Stakes. Ashado also won three graded stakes as a 2-year-old, the Schuylerville, Spinaway, and Demoiselle.

Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2014, Ashado was sold at the 2005 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale to Darley Stud, John Ferguson agent, for $9 million, a world record at the time for a broodmare prospect. She resides at Godolphin’s Gainsborough Farm near Versailles, Ky. Ashado is in foal to Frosted with an expected foaling date of Feb. 23, 2020.

The first two seasons of Foal Patrol, a one-of-a-kind collection of live cameras following the daily activities of in-foal mares, had more than three million total views from December 2017 through September 2019. Ashado is the seventh horse to be announced for Foal Patrol Season 3, joining mares Emotional Kitten at Denali Stud near Paris, Ky., Magical World at Three Chimneys Farm near Versailles, Alpine Sky of Old Tavern Farm near Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Vaulcluse at Gainesway Farm near Lexington, Ky., and New Money Honey at Indian Creek Farm near Paris, Ky. The stallion Gun Runner, at Three Chimneys Farm, will also be featured in the new season of Foal Patrol.

The “Foal Patrol Kids!” event on Dec. 27 will feature a variety of fun and educational activities plus snacks, giveaways, and special guests. Visitors are invited to explore the Foal Patrol website on Museum iPads to learn about the new in-foal mares, make a craft, ride an equipony and see the HorsePlay! Gallery to groom a life-sized stuffed animal horse, dress in jockey attire, and investigate objects related to the many careers associated with horse racing. Admission to the Museum will be free throughout the day.
