Pennsylvania Horse Racing Association Offers Education and Joy to Families and Fans with the Launch of LIVE Foal Cams During Foaling Season

HARRISBURG, PA (February 1, 2021) – The Pennsylvania Horse Racing Association (PHRA) is giving adults and kids alike an educational opportunity to watch what could be the next set of champion race horses being born through its free live foal cams.  The foal cams will go live from Kennett Square-based Walnut Green farm and Wellsville-based Diamond Creek Farm, where a total of 52 expectant mares will be giving birth to either a frisky filly or charming colt from now until the end of May. The foal cams will be live until the end of April.

“As we continue to find new ways to keep ourselves entertained and learning virtually, we are thrilled to give horse racing enthusiasts and new fans the opportunity to get a glimpse into the life of these magnificent creatures, and the beauty of a foal being born, which is truly an awesome sight,” said Pete Peterson, president of the Pennsylvania Horse Racing Association. “We hope that people will tune in and learn about this exciting time we call foaling season.”

Viewers tuning into the PHRA foal cams will see the mares in their stalls as they anticipate the arrivals of their bundles of joy, day-to-day interactions between the mares and their caregivers, and — if lucky enough — the opportunity to witness the births of the next generation of Standardbreds and Thoroughbreds.

In addition to the foal cams, the PHRA website includes the breeding basics, videos, interactive polls and gender reveals.
