First Kentucky foal by Hampton Court

Spendthrift Farm has welcomed the first Kentucky-bred foal by its Australian shuttler Hampton Court.

The bay filly (pictured) is also the first foal from Dating Lady Luck (Arch), a half sister to current star Frank Conversation who won the G2 Twilight Derby at Santa Anita in November.

“This is exactly the type of foal we were looking for when we brought Hampton Court over from Australia,” Spendthrift’s general manager Ned Toffey said.  “The filly is extremely athletic looking, with tremendous bone and substance.”

Hampton Court (Redoute’s Choice) is embarking his second northern book in Kentucky after covering 64 mares in his second southern season in Australia.  He retired to Spendthrift Victoria after a record-breaking Group 1 victory in the Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick.
