Blue Gum Farm’s Broodmare manager, Ian Horwood can now turn off the foaling unit lights and get a well earned night’s rest with the safe arrival of our two final foals being born on Monday night. Both fillies, born just three hours apart are fit and healthy and are enjoying the late spring pasture at Blue Gum Farm.
First cab off the rank was Inchigeela Lass (Montjeu) delivering her second foal by Astronomer Royal and is booked to visit Turffontein. She is pictured here at 12 hours, her dam is a half sister to SW Little Happiness, fitting for such a bonny little filly. She is closely related to multiple Stakes winners Shameka and hugely successful sire Brave Warrior.
Having the honours as the last foal born at BGF was Deltrice (Keltrice) a farm favourite as her own mother, BGF matriarch Delgara grazes nearby pasture as the dam of our own SW Inkster and stakes placed Sorenstam. Deltrice was a very smart race mare who amassed over $243,000 in earnings. The foal is a lovely bay filly with striking markings by Turffontein as depicted in the charming photo above capturing mother and daughter bonding.
