First foals from many stakes winners

Many wonderful (horsey) athletes who went to stud last year have been working and covering mares and the results are just coming in! Here are some that I wanted to share.

This week I have seen a spate of foals being reported from Union Rags, Astrology (my 1st bet ever- Preakness)

1. Union Rags - Belmont 2012 winner. http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/82947/union-rags-first-foal-is-a-colt

2. Astrolgy - Iroqouois winner 2010 and Preakness 3rd 2011. http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/82942/first-foal-for-graded-stakes-winner-astrology

3. I''ll Have Another (Santa Anita Derby, K Derby, Preakness 2012) has his first foal  http://goo.gl/GShPs7  (links to https://www.facebook.com/BIGREDFARM photo of "Big red farm" in Japan.

4. Also this horse named Frankel had a foal (just kidding, Frankel is the real superhorse with an undefeated career)

5. To Honor and Serve (had a filly): http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/82766/to-honor-and-serves-first-foal-is-a-filly

I remember that Tapizar, Dialed In and Stay Thirsty also had first foals recently so I just wanted to acknowledge some of the new beginnings :) The links above may be mostly first foals for all these guys who I have followed, but feel free to share any others you like! It is always good to learn about pedigree crossings.
