Memento d’Oro, a daughter of Medaglia d’Oro owned by Old Tavern Farm in Saratoga Springs, delivered the fifth foal of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s Foal Patrol project at 12:35 a.m. on March 27, 2018.

The foal, a filly by Bodemeister, was an early arrival, as the farm had a projected foaling date of March 30. Both Memento d’Oro and the foal are in perfect health. The live feed of Memento d’Oro and her foal can be viewed on the mare’s page at

“It’s great to see the new foal at Old Tavern Farm,” said Cathy Marino, director of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. “We want to thank Walt Borisenok and his talented staff, including Greg Daley and Trina Paskvale, for all their help and participation in Foal Patrol. We’re looking forward to seeing Memento d’Oro’s foal develop and hopefully enjoy a fantastic career as a racehorse.”

Fans of Foal Patrol can also keep up on all the news and live videos of the mares that have already given birth and follow their interactions with their foals via the Foal Patrol website: Sabbatical (Claiborne Farm), Stopchargingmaria (Three Chimneys), Centre Court (Shawnee Farm) and New York-bred La Verdad (Edition Farm).

The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame launched Foal Patrol on Dec. 19 at The project is a one-of-a-kind collection of live web cameras where people can view real-time streams of several in-foal mares during their pregnancy through the actual foaling.
