Hilltop Farm Foaling Updates
Our 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!
Once again we made the long drive out to the beautiful Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL for the Markel/USEF Young Horse Championships. Michael qualified two horses for the Championships this year.
With each step in their careers, the Riverman offspring continue to impress us with the versatile athleticism that has allowed them to succeed at the highest levels of most every discipline. Over the years we’ve seen Riverman ranked near the top the USEF Leading Sire rankings in multiple disciplines.
