San Miguel, CA (February 11, 2019)-Rancho San Miguel’s stallion Richard’s Kid continues siring winners throughout California on all surfaces and at all distances.
On Saturday, the ninth, Richard’s Kid sent out the debuting Early’s Kid a three-year-old filly out of Early Arriver, by Renteria who graduated in a maiden special at Golden Gate Fields going six panels on the Tapeta surface. She earned $23,400 for her connections of Perry Bruno, John Gezon and Andy Mathis.
Also on Saturday Sapphire Kid, in a Santa Anita allowance race going a mile on the grass, cruised to another win; upping her lifetime earnings to $118,335. She won by two plus lengths and has finished on the board in three of her last four outings.
Richard’s Kid also turned out two winners at Santa Anita on January 25th when sophomore filly Silk From Heaven crushed a maiden special field by six lengths over six furlongs and Helosie also graduated from the maiden ranks that same day.
Richard’s Kid is a multiple Grade One winner of nearly $2.5 million and the winner of back to back Pacific Classics; he is a son of Lemon Drop Kid and Tough Broad, by Broad Brush. He is standing for $3,000 as the property of a partnership.
