As I’ve done over the last three years, I’ll continue the Kiddie List as I seek out the best and brightest of this next generation. Dullahan, El Padrino, Take Charge Indy, Union Rags, Creative Cause, Drill, Dreaming of Julia, Beholder, Kauai Katie, Emollient, Fortify and countless other runners were featured on the Kiddie List before they hit the national radar. Many juveniles that were highlighted on the Kiddie List rewarded their backers with double digit wins.

The Kiddie List will cover the best workers and blue bloods breezing four furlongs and farther. I’ll cover the New York, Kentucky, California and Florida tracks, and occasionally Arlington, Fair Hill and Monmouth. If a particularly well bred baby from the database shows up at another track, I’ll include that one as well. Due to the enormous number of juveniles, some of these names may show up only once or twice. It’s highly suggested that you use a virtual stable, available through Equibase, DRF or Brisnet to follow the babies in whom you’re most interested.

Big Brown gets 10% FTS, but keep an eye on her, especially if she heads for the Poly or turf.

Second dam SIX SEXY SISTERS won 2 of 3 starts, including the Colleen Stakes. This is the distaff family of MGSW sire BEAU GENIUS. Likely workmate of Simply Confection.

Simply Confection (Candy Ride (ARG) - Ballado's Halo, by Saint Ballado) (F) $20K KEESEP13; :48.80 (5/36) gate breeze; So far, none of her 5 half sibs to race own blacktype. Her dam is a SP full sister to Champion ASHADO, MGSW SUNRIVER and G-3 winner SAINT STEPHEN. Candy Ride gets 13% FTS.

The dam is a SP half sister to Cigar Mile winner JERSEY TOWN and the second dam is MG1W JERSEY GIRL. Curlin gets 13% FTS, but this one will likely prefer two turns.

Holy Frazier (Holy Bull - Sandstorm Cat, by Tale of the Cat) (C) :49.20 (11/41); half sib. Won one of 2 starts as a 2YO. There’s no notable blacktype in the first two generations, however the 3rd dam is a SP half sister to SEATTLE SLEW.

Lawn Ranger (U S Ranger - Lalka, by Dynaformer) ) (C) :49.20 (11/41); He’s a ½ to Schuylerville Stakes winner GEORGIE’S ANGEL. Two of four half sibs to race won as two year olds. The dam is ½ to a SW and the second through fourth dams own blacktype. Lawn Ranger has a 3x3 RF (see glossary) to Andover Way, who is the second dam of US Ranger and she is the dam of Dynaformer. Expect to see this colt on the turf.

Redlace and Pearls (Line of David - Maggie's Pearle, by Bright Launch) (F) $110K OBSAPR14; :48.40 (4/41); Two of three half sibs that raced at two were winners. The dam is a half to the dam of G-1 winner MANDY’S GOLD. So far, the offspring of Freshman Sire Line of David are 0-5. The few that I’ve seen have good size and I expect they’ll start to mature mid-season (July) onward.

Amazing Party (Desert Party - Amazing Storm, by Awesome Again) (F) 1:03.00 (15/20) gate breeze; She’s the first foal out of her dam. Amazing Storm was 3rd in her debut. Freshman Sire Desert Party has two winners from four starters, so this one could hit the board fairly early in her career. There’s no blacktype in the first two generations of the distaff line, but the second dam is a half- sister to Champion Sprinter SQUIRTLE SQUIRT.

Stroke Play (Warrior's Reward - Candy Ma'am, by Lemon Drop Kid) (F) $7,500 (RNA) KEENOV12; 1:02.20 (11/20) gate breeze; One of two half sibs to race placed as a 2YO and the dam placed in her second start. The second and third dams own minor blacktype. Freshman Sire Warrior's Reward, a son of MEDAGLIA D'ORO, is off to a huge start at stud with three winners from three starters.

Tiz Town (Tiznow - Bird Town, by Cape Town) (C ) 1:03.80 (17/20) gate breeze; Only four of seven half sibs of racing age made to the track. None own blacktype, and only two won. One of the two hit the board as a 2YO. The dam was Champion 3YO filly and half sister to Belmont Stakes winner and sire BIRDSTONE. The second dam Dear Birdie is a blue hen. Tiz Town is likely trained by Wayne Lukas. I don’t expect Tiz Town to be precocious and he should love two turns. Great pedigree, but so far, the dam hasn’t re-produced anywhere close to her form.

Four of five half siblings raced and hit the board as 2YO. The first two dams own blacktype and the second dam is a full sister to Champion 3YO Filly ALTHEA. Third dam is the blue hen, Courtly Dee.
