The first reported foal for multiple grade I winner To Honor and Serve is a bay filly born Jan. 9 at Gainesway Farm near Lexington.
The filly is out of the Dixie Union mare Tempest Treasure, owned by Gainesway Thoroughbreds Ltd.
"The filly is strong with good leg, a lot of bone and substance," Michael Hernon, director of sales at Gainesway, said. "She is good size and is very healthy and well. We look forward to seeing additional first-crop foals by To Honor and Serve in the coming weeks."
This is the third consecutive foal for Tempest Treasure, a daughter of stakes winner Tempest Dancer, who is a full sister to Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) winner Sardula and half sister to grade I winner Imperial Gesture.
Tempest Treasure will be bred back to To Honor and Serve in 2014.
To Honor and Serve stands at Gainewsay, where his 2014 fee is $20,000.
