Ocala Stud adds Admiral's Kitten, Fort Loudon


Ocala Stud saw one of its best sires, Kantharos, move to Kentucky to stand the upcoming breeding season, and will have two new stallions on its roster to try to take that one’s place. New stallions for the Ocala, Fla.., farm in 2017 are Admiral’s Kitten and Fort Loudon, both moving from other Florida farms. Kantharos stood for $5,000 at Ocala Stud this past season, and will stand for $15,000 at Hill ‘n’ Dale Farms in Lexington, Ky., in 2017.

Admiral’s Kitten, a 6-year-old son of Kitten's Joy out of Reachinforthestars, by Grand Slam, won the 2013 Grade 1 Secretariat Stakes in a career that saw him win 4 of 16 starts and earn $792,394 while racing for his breeders, Ken and Sarah Ramsey. He will stand for $4,000. He had stood his first season this past year at Stroud’s Lane Farm in Reddick, Fla., for a fee of $5,000. He was bred to 20 mares in 2016.

Fort Loudon, a 7-year-old son of Awesome of Course out of Lottsa Talc, by Talc, stood at Bridlewood Farm in Ocala in 2015 and 2016 for a fee of $4,000 each year. He covered 11 mares this past breeding season.

The Big Beast and Uncaptured are the highest-priced stallions on the Ocala Stud roster at $6,000 each for 2017, followed by Awesome of Course at $5,000.
