Reed’s super-competitive speed mare Soraya de L’Obstination had a beautiful filly by Diamant de Semilly via surrogate last night. Both the surrogate mare and the little one is doing well, and the filly is a spitting image of her mother.

By Kashmir Van’t Schuttershof x Skippy II, Soraya has been Reed’s top speed horse for several years. Together, Reed and Soraya have won speed classes at CSI5* Stuttgart, CSI5* Chantilly and CSI5* Valkenswaard. They’ve also amassed top-three finishes at WEF, Spruce Meadows, Thermal and Dublin to mention some of their many highlights in the ring.
