Freedom Child

Wednesday, February 11, 2015
The first foals by Spendthrift Farm regional stallion Freedom Child were reported Feb. 6-7 at Country Life Farm near Bel Air, Md., where the stallion stands 

The first foal is a Feb. 6 filly bred by Country Life out of the 5-year-old winning Purim mare Purr and Prowl, whose second dam is Hollywood Oaks (G1) winner Pattern Step. The second foal is a colt produced from the Prospect Bay mare Hurricane Isabella, a half-sister to multiple stakes winner and Grade 2-placed Strike the Moon. The breeders of the colt are Linda Walls, George Busche, and Rebecca Keller.

"Both foals are like Freedom Child, leggy but balanced," said Josh Pons, who with his brother Mike own and operate Country Life.

Freedom Child, a son of Spendthrift’s leading stallion Malibu Moon who won the Peter Pan S. (G2), is out of the Deputy Minister mare Bandstand, whose dam City Band won the Oak Leaf S. (G1). Jointly owned by Spendthrift Farm, St. Elias Stable, West Point Stable, and Country Life, Freedom Child stands at Country Life for $3,000 and is part of the "Breed Secure and Share the Upside" programs offered by Spendthrift.

Freedom Child covered 81 mares his first season in 2014 at Country Life, where Malibu Moon also began his career.
