Foal Friday: Radiance WTW (and Baby Bets winner!)

Our final 2023 foal has officially arrived! Say hello to Radiance WTW, aka Lucy.

the cutest face

This kiddo was born over Kentucky weekend, as if she knew she was bred to event. Her sire is Future Hepsilon, a young British son of Tom Carlise’s legendary French Anglo Arab stallion Upsilon (who once won a 4* on a score of 17.3).


Her dam is our lovely TB mare Peyton, dam of Remi and Pippa, which makes Lucy 76% blood (a mix of TB and French AA) and the rest mostly German jumping lines.

that tail, it def does some arab things

She’s a sweet girl who likes people, and you can already tell that she’s gonna be a fiery one. She’s got quick reflexes, is athletic and bold, and it looks like she’s gonna be a good mover, too!


This also makes the second very chromey chestnut for Peyton, who carries a gene that maximizes white markings when it’s passed. And yes, before anyone asks, Lucy will turn gray like her sire.

she’s got the moves

The best news of all is that Lucy has already found her people! One of my trainer’s other students was very quick to snatch her up, and I think it’s going to be a really good match.


This also means that all of the WTW 2023 foal crop is sold out. Yup, all of them (except Rue, who Michelle is keeping) have already been claimed! And they went to people that I think will be great homes, so that’s the even more exciting part. Congrats to Caroline, Lija, Claire, and Hillary!

Last but not least for today, the arrival of all the foals (Daisy aborted her foal over the winter, which I know we talked about in the Patreon group but it occurs to me that I don’t know if I ever mentioned it here) means that we have also wrapped up this year’s Baby Bets contest. Y’all were really on it this year, particularly with Lucy… I have no idea how so many of you knew she would be chestnut with chrome! We had some of the highest scores we’ve seen in this contest yet.

The winner is: Jackson! Who unfortunately did not leave an email or method of contact, so hopefully they’re reading this. If so, please reach out to me through my contact page or my socials. If I don’t hear from them within a couple weeks I’ll move to the next highest score. Thank you to everyone who participated this year, and I hope you’re enjoying the foal content. πŸ™‚

  1. I remember Remi as one of the handsomest ever babies. Side-by-sides with Radiance ??? lol

    A Remi update would be awesome!
