Hilltop Farm Foaling Updates

Philly-webOur foaling season here at Hilltop is continuing along really well and we’re very excited about this year’s group of foals.  It’s a fun mix of sires, so we are seeing a lot of diversity.  On May 4th, Raja HTF (Royal Prince-Parabol) gave birth to a tall, long-legged black filly by Contucci.  With 4 matching socks and a star/snip, she’s quite the fancy one.  On May 8th, Liz Frankel’s mare Utopia (Ginsberg-Don Pedro) had her second foal.  This adorable filly is by Vallado (aka Praise) and looks a lot like her sire!  On May 10th, the filly streak broke with the arrival of a very good looking colt by Qredit out of Iris Aberbach’s Berlinetta A (Bugatti-Weltbekannt) who is a full-sister to the very successful Boxster A.  We’re now officially over halfway through our foaling season!

The phone rings at Hilltop Farm and breeding manager Natalie DiBerardinis answers. Just as she suspected, it is a mare owner looking for advice. Which stallion would be a good match for her mare, the caller asks anxiously. With scientific advances in artificial insemination, the choices for a perfect partner have never been greater, but that doesn't mean the selection process is any simpler. DiBerardinis asks the owner a few questions about her mare and suggests she complete Hilltop's online questionnaire. After reading it, she and the caller will talk again to discuss the options.
