What color will the foal be?

So Sequel is 5 months along and I am already dreaming of colors,markings,and names

Sequel is a bay and the sire,Redwine, is a black sabino.

Sequel's sire is grey and her dam is (I think) bay. Redwines sire is black and dam I couldnt find.

So I know there is a good chance for bay,a medium chance for black,and a small chance for chestnut (which is what I want)

Is there also a chance since Sequel's sire is grey that the foal could be grey or is it about 0%?

The foal cannot be gray because Sequel herself is not gray. Gray does not skip generations.

You will either get a black, a bay, or a chestnut.

ETA: Poco, on the calculator, if you just select unknown for the genes, it skews the outcome.

This is the percentages with everything as heterozygous:
18.75% - Black Sabino
18.75% - Black
18.75% - Bay Sabino
18.75% - Bay
12.50% - Chestnut Sabino
12.50% - Chestnut
