Rise In US Foal Crop Predicted

Tuesday, 11th August 2015

A first year-on-year increase in the North American foal crop in more than a decade is being predicted for 2016, reports Racing Post. The Jockey Club of North America projects a thoroughbred foal crop of 22,500 for next year, up from 22,000 in 2014 and 2015. "The projection for the 2016 foal crop is based on reports of mares bred received to date, and we estimate that around 80 per cent of those reports have been received," The Jockey Club's executive vice president Matt Iuliano said. The foal crop projection is calculated by using Reports of Mares Bred (RMBs) received to mid-August for the 2015 breeding season.
