Multiple graded stakes winner and record setter Kiss the Kid sired his first reported foals recently in Florida when a filly and colt were both born within a few days of one another at Hardacre Farm.
A bay filly was the first to give birth on Jan. 26 out of the Came Home mare Came Through, a half-sister to Grade 1-placed Noble Causeway. On Jan. 29, a bay colt was born out of the Hennessy mare Firefly Fancy, a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner Fire Slam. Both were bred by Hardacre Farm.
Kiss the Kid was a multiple graded stakes winner on turf and Grade 1-placed on dirt. He won the Appleton S. (G3) and Cliff Hanger S. (G3) on grass, a surface he also set a new course record on at Monmouth Park. Kiss the Kid placed in the Donn H. (G1), Gulfstream Park H. (G2), Meadowlands Cup S. (G2) and Iselin S. (G3) and dirt, and also placed in the Ben Ali S. (G3) at Keeneland on Polytrack.
By Lemon Drop Kid, Kiss the Kid retired to Brent & Crystal Fernung's Journeyman Stud in Ocala in 2011 after amassing career earnings of $820,873 on the racetrack. He is out of a full sister to Horse of the Year Black Tie Affair.
Kiss the Kid will stand his second season in 2012 for a fee of $3,500 stands and nurses.
