Elate and her Speightstown colt, part of Foal Patrol Season 5.
Foal Patrol, an initiative of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, has partnered with the Paulick Report in Season 5 to bring you closer to featured mares and foals and to ask farm staff your questions about their care and management over the course of the season.
In this episode with Elate and her Speightstown colt foaled on March 11 at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky, Claiborne’s Mary Ormsby addresses the question, “Does labor occur more often in the day or night?”

The new Season 5 Education Site provides a platform to respond to viewers’ questions, share information about horse care and management from breeding through retirement, and spotlight efforts across the industry to provide the best possible care for Thoroughbreds before, during, and after their racing careers. In partnership with industry collaborators, we will add new content to the Foal Patrol Education Site for viewers of all ages from now through June at foalpatrol.com/education.
Your Stories gives viewers the chance to share photos of their own mares and foals, selfies with Foal Patrol’s mascot, Smokey, and stories about what Foal Patrol means to them. Send your photos and stories to [email protected] for a chance to be featured on foalpatrol.com/education/your-stories.
