This Congrats colt by Deceit born at Woodford Thoroughbreds is among this week's featured foals

The 2015 foaling season is well underway, and especially in the social media age, one of the staples this time of year in the Thoroughbred industry is sharing foal photos.

Thanks to our sponsor, Merck Animal Health, in the coming weeks we'll be bringing you foal photos from across the Bluegrass and elsewhere. This week's group of stallions includes Tapit, To Honor And Serve, Congrats, Animal Kingdom, and Shanghai Bobby. Since the snow won't seem to go away, there's a lot of white stuff on the ground.
