La Ville Rouge produced another full brother to Barbaro March 10 at Mill Ridge Farm near Lexington. The colt, who was born at 10:45 p.m. and weighs 142 pounds, is by Dynaformer.
“He is a good size colt with plenty of leg and size as indicative of his weight,” said Headley Bell, the managing partner of Mill Ridge. “A bay colt, he only has a marking on the center of his forehead. Thankfully both mom and baby are well.”
The colt was bred by Roy and Gretchen Jackson. La Ville Rouge has produced two other full brothers to ill-fated Barbaro, who won the 2006 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I). Her 3-year-old, Nicanor, finished second in a maiden special weight March 7 at Gulfstream Park. Lentenor, the 2-year-old, is in training at Stephens Thoroughbreds near Ocala, Fla.
La Ville Rouge is booked to Dynaformer.
For those asking about photos, please keep in mind that most farms like a mare and her new foal to have a few days to get used to each other and their new world first. Just be patient.
