Cute Foals of the Week for Jan. 8

The Life
Penelope P. Miller/America's Best Racing

Thoroughbreds in North America all celebrate their birthdays on January 1, so as soon as the New Year rolls around, so does “foaling season” – that magical time that lasts from the beginning of January through the late spring when racehorse babies are born. In this weekly piece, we’ll bring you the best of new arrivals to the Thoroughbred world. So sit back, relax, and take in the Cute Foals of the Week for 2017! What batter way to kick off the Cute Foals of the Week for 2017 than by introducing the very first foal by Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner American Phaorah?

Not only is he royally-bred, but he’s adorable, too!

And it looks like he’s as friendly as his father:

Looks like Got Lucky is going to be a wonderful mother to her brand-new son by War Front:

Congratulations to WinStar Farm, who welcomed their first arrival of 2017 by Carpe Diem!

Three white socks, fuzzy ears, and killer side-eye? We’re in love with this son of Medaglia d’Oro and Agave Kiss!

How cute is this daughter of Carpe Diem and One Bad Kitty?

We love seeing these foals grow up! Check out the changes in Zensational Kiss:

He’s got the eye of the tiger! Shoe Loves Shoe has grown from a bashful foal to a tough racehorse over the last three years.

This little foal, now named Made You Look, has grown up and just won the Dania Beach Stakes at Gulfstream Park on January 7!

Bonus Cute Animal of the Week: Every week we feature another adorable animal in addition to our cute foals. This week, we have a hay net full of kittens and the horses who love them!
