Rare White Thoroughbred Born in Kentucky

Patchen Beauty, the rare white Thoroughbred mare who garnered a lot of attention when she competed on the Kentucky circuit in the mid-1990s, produced a white colt on April 5 at Warren Rosenthal's Patchen Wilkes Farm near Lexington, Ky.

Farm manager Barry Ezrine said the colt, a son of Overbrook Farm stallion Pioneering, was "heatlhy and running around." He is the first registered foal for 7-year-old Patchen Beauty, who had two victories and earnings of $54,268 to her credit.
