Peppers Pride, who retired unbeaten in 19 starts, gave birth to her third foal on Feb. 22, a Malibu Moon colt.

Peppers Pride, a fan favorite who retired unbeaten after 19 starts in 2009, gave birth to her third foal on Feb. 22, a Malibu Moon colt born at Taylor Made Farm in Nicholasville, Ky.

The 10-year-old Desert God mare is also the dam of a 2-year-old Distorted Humor filly and a yearling Distorted Humor colt.

Peppers Pride, who raced exclusively in her home state of New Mexico, earned  $1,066,085 for her career.

Her 14 stakes victories included two editions of the New Mexico State Racing Commission Handicap; the New Mexico Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes; the New Mexico Cup Fillies Stakes; and two editions of the New Mexico Cup Fillies and Mares Stakes.

This mare has been booked into the courts of two pretty nice stallions so far and now it is up to her to pass on the goods! It looks like a nice cross here with the classic distance sires covering a sprinting mare. I am more interested in seeing the Malibu Moon colt than the two Distorted Humors. I only hope these babies don't get pidgeon holed into staying in New Mexico.

I cannot believe it has been 4 years since she was retired! What is happening with her 2 year old filly? Is she racing and how does one find out?

Well, it's February of her 2 year old year, the earliest she most likely could start would be June of this year...

How is it even possible that you've been a racing fan for at least 4 years, most likely at least 5-7 based on PP's career, and: a) Have no idea the many ways to look up a horse and see if they've been named and if they've begun working (not mutually exclusive, btw). b) Have no idea that TBs don't race in February of their 2YO year?

Gee, thanks for weighing in Lila...but you don't seem to be doing much to help anyone...so glad for you that you know it all...just like VQ, we ALL know where you both are coming from.

Gosh, and it's such a wonder racing doesn't get new fans. When people try to learn and understand things they just get shut down by people like you. Our sport dies a thousand little deaths a day from "the old boys club" of people who "know" racing and rather than share their knowledge, they rebuke anyone who asks questions.

Love hearing about these great race mares! She was fun to follow. I wonder how Hallowed Dreams is doing.

Debra, I use a www.pedigreenquiry.com to check up on horses occasionally. It is more of a look at the horse's lineage but it sometimes gives stats and a photo of the horse. Also, search both DRF and Bloodhorse. They might have articles or race results attached to the name. Another source might be Thorotrends but it might be limited. It is frustrating at times when one tries to follow favourites if they aren't up there in the graded stakes or at a not famous racetrack.

A few other great places to look...www.equibase.com and www.equineline.com. They offer lots for free. Also try www.chronofhorse.com...go across the top and click on "Voices"...then go down and click on "Chronicle Forums"...there are many topics one of which is "Racing". Lots of knowledge there...and free.

Debra...Put her name in "search" at www.bloodhorse.com...some interesting articles. Her last 2 TB foals were fillies (Libbies Mission 07 and Hollie Heart 08), they both have starts this year. Sign up for a "Virtual Stable" at equibase if you haven't already. It's free. Put them in your stable and you will get alerts when they workout/race. Her 3 previous TB foals were colts and did ok at the track. Via embryo transfer she produced 3 QH fillies in 2010...one has done quite well.
