Millionaire and multiple G1 winner, Richard's Kid  (Lemon Drop Kid – Tough Broad, by Broad Brush) has been retired and relocated to Magali Farms in Santa Ynez, California where he will stand the 2014 season for $4,500.

Richard's Kid won multiple G1 races, including the prestigious Pacific Classic Stakes at Del Mar in back to back years (2009 and 2010) while earning $2,482,259.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to stand Richard's Kid,” said Tom Hudson of Magali Farms.

“I loved this horse as a racehorse. He is a brand in himself. He made 47 starts in his career, which shows great heart and soundness. He ran and won at multiple distances ranging from 1 to 1+1/2 miles. This coupled with his pedigree and conformation makes him a great choice for California breeders.”

Tom Hudson invites breeders to make an appointment to see Richard's Kid and the rest of the Magali Farms stallion roster.

    A true racehorse.

  • Sharla

    Will miss seeing him in the barn, but so happy he will be at Magali and available to visit. Best Wishes Ricardo!

    He’s been retired for two months. With an injury. Why is this news?

    • RayPaulick

      The news is that he will be standing at Magali.

      • realist

        So the story is where he’s going, not the retirement? It didn’t say that he was retired in September. Or that he’s been there for months and has been examined by multiple mare owners already.

          It is called a press release, used by all farms to let everyone (not just those in the know) of their new stallion. Nothing to get annoyed about.

    RICHARD’S KID ran at 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 years of age! He is a multiple Grade 1 stakes winner. He was durable and sound. It appears that he has all the desirable attributes a racehorse should have. Hopefully that all translates into a successful stud career.

    I’m so glad this wonderful boy in staying with us. The “Kid” has shown himself to be one tough competitor. I loved him and I loved watching him race. Have a great retirement Sweetheart and go make some great babies…

    Wasnt Magali Farms sold to Brazilian interests? Why the press in the US never released this news? Coudelaria Jessica bought it, according to the Brazilian thoroughbred press.

    • Magali Farms

      Hello Janet,

      As a representative of Magali Farms, I would like to clarify this falsehood regarding the change in ownership of Magali Farms. It is still owned by Mr. & Mrs. Sulpizio. There have been no, nor are the plans for, discussions regarding the sale of Magali Farms to Brazilian interests or anyone else. We are not sure how this false information was generated, but rest assured it is in fact false information.
      We are very pleased to have added Richard’s Kid to our great stallion roster, and are looking forward to his new career as a stallion.

        Thank you for this information. The Brazilian racing site (most popular) Raia Leve ran the news that the owner of Coudelaria Jessica had a stake in Magali since April 2013 and it was “breaking news” on that website with pictures of the farm and everything. I will alert my Brazilian friends that this is FALSE. Thanks for your clarification. I just hope the website in Brazil would run an error notice regarding this as a lot of people out there believes the contrary. They also ran a “news” about a filly called Top Pegasus being the first product of such partnership/co-ownership. (???) I think it’s an absurd that the Brazilian news site is doing this.
