The Jockey Club is projecting a 2001 registered Thoroughbred foal crop of 37,300, marking the fourth consecutive increase in foal crop size. The projection, traditionally announced at the time of The Jockey Club Round Table Conference, is computed from Reports of Mares Bred so far received for the 2000 breeding season.
The 2001 estimate represents a 1.6% increase against the current 2000 foal crop forecast of 36,700. The estimated 1999 registered Thoroughbred foal crop is 36,500, while the 1998 registered Thoroughbred foal crop is projected at 36,000.
