On Tuesday (June 11) New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher visited Mark Mullen, owner of Fair Winds Farm in Cream Ridge, to meet the much-acclaimed Coochie Mama and her foal, a rare white colt. Tthe last known all-white Standardbred in North America was born in Canada almost 15 years ago. The white colt was born on May 6 at Fair Winds Farm.

"Standing next to such beautiful animals here at the farm reminds us once again of the extraordinary heritage and impacts Standardbred racing and horse farm operations have on the state's economy,” said Secretary Fisher. "The white colt ignites our imagination and reminds us why the horse is the State Animal of New Jersey.” (New Jersey Dept. of Agriculture)
