1899: Garoga produces two foals in same calendar year

“The new volumn [sic] of the American Stud Book reveals a new world’s record had by the brood mare Garoga, by Virgil, dam Penny, by Jerome Edger, owned by S. Sanford & Sons, Hurrican stud, Amsterdam, N. Y., inasmuch as she is the first mare that ever lived that threw two foals by different horses the same year that proved winners. On January 27 she foaled Trisbe’s Hill, by Clifford, and on December 30, the same year, dropped Ray, by Potomac. The latter raced and won last year as a 3-year-old, when had she been foaled two days later she would have been eligible to any 2-year-old race run off in this country. That she made such a brilliant record at such a disadvantage in age with horses she raced, marks her a most unique performer and worth to class as one of the real stars of the past racing season.”
(The Atlanta Constitution, 01/25/1903)
