Four-time champion Beholder (Henny Hughes) delivered a filly by War Front Wednesday night at Spendthrift Farm in Lexington.
“Beholder foaled a very nice War Front filly last night on the farm,” confirmed Ned Toffey, General Manager at Spendthrift. “This filly is a good-sized, well-made foal, with a great shoulder and plenty of bone. She couldn’t be doing any better. The delivery was very smooth and uneventful. It was another beautiful effort by Beholder.”
The dark bay filly was born at approximately 8:30 p.m. and “stood up within 20 minutes” according to Toffey. She’s the third foal for Beholder, who has a 2-year-old Uncle Mo colt –named Q B One-and a yearling filly by Curlin. Beholder will visit Spendthrift stallion Bolt d’Oro in 2020.
Beholder retired from racing in 2016 with 18 wins (including three wins in the Breeders’ Cup) from 26 starts with earnings of $6,156,600. She earned Eclipse Awards as the outstanding 2-year-old filly of 2012, 3-year-old filly of 2013, and older filly & mare of 2015 and 2016. For more information, visit www.ChampionBeholder.com.
