Rough night. Pontchatrain died trying to deliver her foal. Foal didn't survive either. Pontchatrain was an absolutely brilliant filly, the only horse in Glen Hill Farm history to win four consecutive stakes races, starting with the Unzip Me, then the G3 Senator Ken Maddy, then the G2 Monrovia, and finally the G2 Buena Vista. She was a sweet horse to be around as well.


from Glen Hill Farms' FB page. not the news anyone likes waking up to.


Oh man, this stinks. Loved watching her run. :-(

Royal Delta has died from foaling complications. Her Galileo filly survived.

How very sad, I saw this on the Blood Horse. At least the foal survived so that is some comfort to her owners.

I too am so devastated to hear this. She was one of my all time favourite mares :'( And she had so much potential as a broodmare! I really hope this filly is a cracker, and that the half sisters to Royal Delta can pass on their mother's line.

I wonder if this tragic loss will increase interest in her full brother, Classic Empire oops...I mean Empire Way, as a stallion? His genetics may have just gotten a lot more precious.

(empire way! though i understand the slip)

looks like he's standing in CA for $5k, currently.

not sure they'd move him elsewhere, i don't know how well he's doing, but i guess it's possible, now.
Follow your heart. You need it. And where did it learn to scurry like that?
