2013 Foal Announcements
Lots of new Bugatti foals have arrived in the last few weeks. Bill and Charlotte Roseburg’s third and final Bugatti foal of the season has arrived! This time it is a filly out of the Thoroughbred mare Purple Bal (Order – Fred Astaire). “Very correct, coordinated, and special! She will make someone a very lovely partner. Thanks to team Hilltop (and of course Mr. Bugatti), we are blessed once again.”
It’s a pinto Bugatti for Brenda Kelly! Brenda’s mare Sizzle had a chestnut pinto filly by Bugatti on June 27th. She is quite possibly the flashiest Bugatti foal we have ever seen! Congratulations Brenda!
Congratulations to Beth Custalow of California! Beth’s mare Romantic (Rohdiamant – Airport) had a pretty chestnut Bugatti filly. Both mare and foal are doing well.
In Canada, it’s a Bugatti colt out of the Thoroughbred mare Root For Lady Jane. This is breeder Jane Mitchell’s third Bugatti foal over the past few years. Congratulations on another lovely Bugatti foal Jane!
Congratulations to Hannah Mattis on the arrival of her Riverman filly out of the Thoroughbred mare Canwestillbefriends. The pretty filly has been named Fritz River. We can’t wait to see her competing as a hunter or jumper in a few years – we’re sure she will be a star!
In Ohio, it’s a surprisingly flashy Royal Prince colt. With four tall whites and a big blaze, we’re not sure where this handsome chestnut colt got so much white! He certainly wasn’t what breeder Christina Canter expected when she bred her Danish mare Pennsylvania K to Royal Prince, but she couldn’t be happier.
It’s a Donarweiss colt for Michelle Rooney of Arizona. Michelle’s Westfalen mare Plum Bayou Morning Glory had a handsome black Donarweiss colt with three white socks and a star. Typically of the Donarweiss offspring, this little guy is enjoying learning lots of new things like leading, clipping, and picking up his feet.
In Middletown, Maryland breeder Lori Garnant was excited to announce the arrival of her second Riverman foal out of her special Thoroughbred mare Star Evans. She’s named the handsome bay colt Riverbend. Congratulations Lori!
Heidi Rose and Flint Ridge Farm are pleased to announce the first Don Hill U.S. filly! She is a lovely girl, and very friendly. Dulcinea is a chestnut with lots of refinement, long legs, 3 white stockings and a white blaze, very flashy! Addy is the best mom ever, very kind and sweet, very easy delivery. Thanks so very much to Natalie and Brittany for their patience and understanding and to my fantastic support group at FRF!
Congratulations to Kathy Jackson on the arrival of her Bugatti colt out of her Del Piero – Parabol mare Delicat. Kathy has named the tall bay colt Bremen. We can’t wait to see what this same cross produces next year!
We are seeing lots of white on the Royal Prince foals this year and Paulette Zeigler’s filly is no different. Paula’s filly Royal Odessa(Royal Prince x Ulla/Chardonay) has four white socks and a big blaze, very surprising when you consider the small amount of white on her full sister. Congratulations Paula!
Another Popeye colt for 2013, Judy Force’s pony mare Wind Dancer had a handsome bay colt on June 7th. The colt is bay with two small hind socks and a star. Both mare and foal are doing well and Judy couldn’t be happier with the colt!

We just received great news from breeder Dr. Dara Lindner. “Hi, Team Hilltop! I’ve got a couple of foal announcements for you. Mazurka delivered her Festrausch colt May 27th. He is a very leggy bay who we expect to be quite tall – just like Dad. Also, Wolke Neun delivered her Don Principe colt this morning (June 21). He has four whites and a blaze. We’re not sure where all this chrome came from, as the mare looks very much like Don Principe (dark bay with virtually no white). Both colts are doing great. We’re very pleased.” Congratulations Dara!
Congratulations to Dianne Kirk of Ohio on the arrival of her Negro filly out of the Oldenburg mare Ensenada (Ex Libris). Dianne commented “She is gorgeous and very balanced and does beautiful flying lead changes already.”

Last year was a handsome black colt this year, this year a pretty and quite flash chestnut filly. Kyle’s Oldenburg mare Catera (Martini – Guarantor)had her second Contucci foal.
We sold all of our frozen semen inventory on Festrausch last breeding season, so all the Festrausch foals this year are extra special! The latest Festrausch foal of 2013 is a filly out of the Thoroughbred mare Pyrite Glory (Family Calling – Green Dancer). Owner/breeder Nicole Taylor couldn’t be happier! “This filly is absolutely perfect, I could not have asked for anything better! From pedigree, to movement, to temperament, to color, she is exactly what I hoped for, I feel so lucky!”
The arrival of Thoroughbred mare Velvet Brown’s Bugatti filly was a very special occasion. Shortly after being bred Velvet was hurt in a pasture accident. After all the hard work breeder Judy McGaughan put in to see Velvet back to health, it’s rewarding to see her healthy and active filly by her side. “The baby is very athletic, built uphill with a beautiful face and eye. Shes very smart and feisty and I am so glad we decided to let her come full term.”
Congratulations to Diane Morey of Arizona on the arrival of her Bugatti filly out of the Trakehner mare Merlot (Abdullah – Amagun). Diana commented on the filly’s gorgeous neck set, shoulder, hip, and great bone. She also shared that her filly has a sweet and loving temperament.
