2015 US Foal Crop Steady

Monday, 11th August 2014

The Jockey Club, the principle governing body dedicated to the maintenance of The American Stud Book, announced on Saturday that it is forecasting the 2015 North American foal crop will remain steady at 22,000, reports bloodhorse.com. The projections for the 2013 and 2014 foal crops were 23,000 and 22,000, respectively. "The projection for the 2015 foal crop is based on reports of mares bred received to date, and we estimate that approximately 80% of those reports have been received," said Matt Iuliano, The Jockey Club's executive vice president and executive director, in a statement released by the organization. The foal crop projection, traditionally announced in mid-August, is calculated by using Reports of Mares Bred received to date for the 2014 breeding season. RMBs are to be filed by Aug 1 of each breeding season.
