Today we have Taylor Made's Katie Taylor Whalen on behalf of Larry Best, owner of OXO Equine.

First Foal a Filly for Instilled Regard

Taylor Made Stallions' Instilled Regard (Arch), a Grade I winner and four-time graded stakes winner, sired his first reported foal when a filly out of the stakes-winning and stakes-producing Malibu Moon mare Hung the Moon was born Thursday, Jan. 13.
