“He will NOT be going overseas,” Ramsey said. “Can't believe all the local interest here in Kentucky. Guess when you have the number one living sire on the general sire list some important horse people don't want him to leave the state.”
Kitten's Joy is North America's leading turf sire, and is second by earnings behind the late Unbridled's Song on the general sire list.
Now, Ramsey is in the process of finding a partner to help him stand the stallion in 2018.
