Valley of Light's Breeding History:
* In 2019 Valley of Light tested in foal to Snitzel after her first cover on 15/9/19 but tested negative on her 3rd scan on 28/10/19. This was due to a hoof abcess that caused Valley of Light to very lame during the early stages of her pregnancy. Valley of Light was covered again by Snitzel on 9/11/19 but failed to ovulate and wasn't re-covered due to the lateness of the season.
