Derby Kitten: his dam is to be sold at Fasig-Tipton's November Sale and will be offered with breeding rights to stallion Kitten's Joy



Broodmare buyers
will get breeding rights
to sire Kitten's Joy

BUYERS of the two broodmares consigned by Ramsey Farm in the Fasig-Tipton November Sale will also receive breeding rights for the purchased mare to Ken and Sarah Ramsey’s homebred sire Kitten's Joy for the 2012 season.

The mares are Blush, a winning mare by Menifee and the dam of two winners from two runners, the Grade 3 winner Derby Kitten and stakes winner William’s Kitten, both by Kitten’s Joy, and the  winning Capote mare Cardinalli. She is the dam of the multiple Grade 2 winner Banned, who is also by Kitten’s Joy.

Both mares are in foal to Kitten’s Joy.

“These top producing mares, accompanied by the right to breed back to Kitten’s Joy in 2012, represent a fantastic package to prospective buyers,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “This is the first instance of which I can recall that one can purchase a mare carrying a full-sibling to a graded stakes winner, along with the extra incentive to breed that mare back to that stallion again.  Mr. Ramsey is offering a tremendous opportunity here, and we are grateful that he has chosen to do so at our November sale.”

Kitten’s Joy is currently the leading North American third crop sire by North American earnings, stakes winners (13) and stakes wins (17).
