SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — Thoroughbred racing champion Pioneerof the Nile has a new daughter.

Stopchargingmaria, housed at Three Chimneys Farm in Versailles, Kentucky, delivered a filly by Pioneerof the Nile on Friday. The Eclipse Award-winning mare is the second to give birth this year as part of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s so-called Foal Patrol.

The museum launched a new video project in December aimed at attracting new fans to thoroughbred racing and offering enthusiasts a rare look behind the scenes. Foal Patrol is a collection of live web cameras with real-time streams of in-foal mares during their pregnancies.

The next mare scheduled to give birth is Centre Court, who is in foal to Medaglia d’Oro at Shawnee Farm in Harrodsburg, Kentucky.
