Sabbatical, owned by Phipps Stable, was the first mare in the Foal Patrol project to give birth this year, delivering a colt by War Front on Jan. 19 at Claiborne Farm. Phipps Stable agreed to choose the colt’s name from selections submitted by fans of Foal Patrol. The Jockey Club has approved the submitted name Tour of Duty.

The name Tour of Duty was submitted by Michelle Giedt of Plymouth, Mich., and Elizabeth Blair of Shamong, N.J. The winners will receive a letter from the Museum, Foal Patrol merchandise and an opportunity to visit historic Claiborne Farm through Horse Country, a Kentucky-based tour company specializing in horse farm experiences.
