The broodmare La Ville Rouge, dam of 2006 Kentucky Derby winner
Barbaro, has produced a fourth full brother to that popular runner.
Ridge Farm in Lexington, Ky., where owners Gretchen and Roy Jackson
board La Ville Rouge, announced Thursday afternoon that the mare
produced her fifth Dynaformer colt, weighing 138 pounds, on May 18.
only a day old, he appears to have plenty of leg and bone and [be] a
quality foal,” said Mill Ridge’s managing partner, Headley Bell. “Any
time you have a healthy foal you are thankful. Especially when it is a
brother to Barbaro. The Jacksons are considering breeding the mare back
to Dynaformer, for they have always sought a sister to Barbaro.”
