SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame is offering a variety of online educational programming and social interaction for people of all ages.

These online programs include the popular Foal Patrol, #HistoryThroughArt and a downloadable 3rd Grade STEM packet.

Season 3 of Foal Patrol (www.foalpatrol.com) is in full swing, featuring six mares and the champion stallion Gun Runner. This one-of-a-kind interactive web project provides viewers a unique opportunity to learn about the breeding and foaling process and watch live as the mares give birth.

So far in Season 3, Magical World (Three Chimneys Farm, Versailles, Ky.), New Money Honey (Indian Creek Farm, Paris, Ky.), and Hall of Fame member Ashado (Gainsborough Farm, Versailles, Ky.) have delivered foals. Three more mares – Vaulcluse (Gainesway Farm, Lexington, Ky.), Alpine Sky (Old Tavern Farm, Saratoga Springs, N.Y.), and Emotional Kitten (Denali Stud, Paris, Ky.) – are participating in Season 3 and their progress can be viewed on their individual pages.

In addition to the live cameras, Foal Patrol Season 3 features an educational blog, information on horse anatomy and pedigree, horse behavior, nutrition, and links to racing industry resources.
