The first foal by Grade 2 winner Hangover Kid was reported by Audrey Murray of Murmur Farm in Darlington, a chestnut colt out of the winning Carnivalay mare Aunt Louise bred by Richie Blue Jr. and born on Feb. 11.
Hangover Kid entered stud at Murmur Farm after campaigning with equal efficiency on dirt and turf and earning $643,203. Over four seasons, the son of champion and top sire Lemon Drop Kid made 26 starts, recording seven wins, seven seconds and three thirds, and was on the board in five stakes. His victories included the Grade 2 Bowling Green Handicap at Belmont Park and West Point Stakes at Saratoga and he was graded stakes-placed three times, including a third in the United Nations Stakes-G1 behind Big Blue Kitten and Teaks North. In his final start he finished sixth in the Breeders’ Cup Turf-G1, less than four lengths behind champion Main Sequence.
Out of the Rakeen mare Absolute Patience, a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner and stakes producer Who Did It and Run, Hangover Kid is from the family of Grade 1 winner Cost of Freedom. The 9-year-old stallion, who stands for $2,500 live foal, covered nine mares his first season.
