This lady is by @claibornefarm young sire Mastery who’s 1st crop race this year. She’s out of GSP Giants Causeway mare General Consensus. She’s only 3 days old so is all legs still. @CandyMeadowsSa1 pic.twitter.com/FhHVcqlfSW

It's tough work being the last foal born on the farm for the year! This colt from the final crop of @JuddmonteFarms' great Arrogate was nice to our foaling crew and arrived at 5pm to end our season on a considerate note. #FoalPhotos2021 pic.twitter.com/AZ02Q09ENg
