Winbak Farm is proud to announce the arrival of its first 2021 foal. The colt is sired by The Bank and out of the mare, Clover Market. This is the first known foal of The Bank born in North America.
He arrived at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, January 15th. He was born at Winbak Farm of Maryland in Chesapeake City, Maryland.
“The colt is doing great and is very handsome,” said Garrett Bell, General Manager. “We have been highly anticipating the arrival of foals from The Bank.”
This is the second foal from Clover Market. She is a daughter Victors Vicky, 1:55f ($712,342).
The Bank, 2, 1:53.4; 3, 1:50.4 ($1,214,895), stood in Sweden before moving to Ontario in 2020. He was ranked 6th in 2020 for 3-year-old trotters in Sweden against tough trotting competition like Bold Eagle and Muscle Hill.
“We look forward to seeing the rest of The Bank’s first North American crop,” said Bell. “With his pedigree of international champions, we have high expectations for the racing careers of his offspring.”
The Bank stands at Winbak Farm of Ontario for $5,000 CAD.
Winbak Farm encourages foal fans to follow the farm on Facebook. Most of the foals born will be posted on the Winbak Farm Facebook Page and fans will be able to submit name ideas. Winbak Farm has previously used many names submitted by Facebook followers with the belief that it encourages interest in the sport when people can follow horses that they named.
