Courtly Choice’s first foal arrives

Chesapeake City, MD — On Monday (Jan. 25) at 1:15 a.m., the first known foal sired by Courtly Choice p,2,1:53.1h; 3, 1:47.1 ($1,345,754) was born. The foal, a colt, was born at Winbak Farm of Maryland in Chesapeake City.

“The colt appears to be the complete package and is noticeably good looking,” said Garrett Bell, Winbak Farm General Manager. “With a pedigree like his, we expect him to be among the elite when he is old enough to race.”

The dam of the colt is Spring Break p,2,1:57.4h; 3,1:50.3z ($787,057), who won 39 races before retiring. She is the dam of Bettor Than Spring p,3,1:52.1f; 1:51.2h -’20 ($266,604) and Tuxedo Bay p,2,1:54.4s; 3,1:53.1s; 1:50 ($168,030).

Courtly Choice stands his second season in 2021 at Winbak Farm of New York.

“With Courtly Choice being a Winbak Farm graduate himself, we can’t help but be thrilled that his first foals are foaling this year,” said Bell. “Actually, Spring Break was a Winbak Farm graduate as well, so this colt is extra special already.”
