Wicked Strong colt
Take a look at this impressive colt (foaled February 7, 2017) by new sire WICKED STRONG, who was “wicked strong” on the racetrack. He won the G1 Wood Memorial by a dominant 3 1/2 lengths at 3, running 1 1/8 miles in 1:49.31 – the fastest time since Bellamy Road in 2005, faster than Tapit, Unbridled's Song, etc. He then went even faster in claiming the G2 Jim Dandy at Saratoga by 2 1/4 lengths over Tonalist in 1:49.16 – faster than Bernardini, Awesome Again, etc., and went on to be the runner-up by a nose in the Travers S. [G1] at 3 and Jockey Club Gold Cup [G1] at 4, as well as third by a half-length in Remsen S. [G2] at 2 and Woodward S. [G1] at 4. WICKED STRONG earned nine triple-digit Beyers from 8-10 furlongs at four different tracks and on three different surfaces for earnings almost $2 million. He’s also by one of DANZIG's best sons at stud, HARD SPUN, and from an active and deep female family. Now popular in the breeding shed, WICKED STRONG bred 329 mares in 2016-17, his first two seasons at stud. His first yearlings hit the sales ring in 2018, with weanlings bringing as much as $85,000 at Keeneland November. This athletic youngster is out of the young race-winning mare Keith’s Kitten, who is a full sister to G2-winner and G1-placed EMOTIONAL KITTEN, and a half-sister to G1-placed and now black-type producer UNSPOKEN WORD (by Catienus). From just three foals of racing age to date, Keith’s Kitten has already produced a winner in Kitazi (by Kitalpha) and has an exciting two-year-old Regal Ransom filly named Veloso Raptor whose career is just getting started in Canada.
