Congratulations!

(So you'll be naming her "Hole-in-the-Head" because you need another horse like...?)

She was named before she was ever conceived. Follow this:

Sire Memoir, by Janan Abinoam out of Reminisce.

Dam Capucine, by Capulet out of Reminisce.

(Yes, she has one grandmother.)

Obviously, her name is Recapitulation.

Cute! I used to read the race results in the Post when I was younger, just because I liked the way the names were combined and recombined (they normally printed the sire and dam as well as horse name.)

Hn? Sire's chestnut, dam is a heterozygous grey carrying (at least) chestnut.. turns out the filly is chestnut as well (see my newer entry). No rocket science there (or am I incorrect in assuming you know basic coat color inheritance in horses?)

shades of chestnut

My guess is that she'll be around Reminisce's shade.

The pics don't show it well, but Davenports (even the non-chestnuts) generally have a fabulous metallic sheen to their coats. See the new pictures of Palisades, for an example. (Palisades and Reminisce are half brother/sister.)

Yeah, I saw his new pics, honestly they are far more striking that the running pic I saw of him in, I think, the Al Khamsa stallion directory? Not sure, either way, you might want to consider adding those, I think they show him off to be far more handsome. Such a /face/
