First Foal Is A Filly For Late New York Stallion The Lieutenant

The first foal by The Lieutenant is a filly born Saturday, Feb. 1 at Keane Stud in Amenia, N.Y., for breeder Meadow Hill Lane Farm.

She is out of Keysong, a winning producer by Songandaprayer with a $413,000 yearling sales average and half-sister to NYRA stakes winner Miss Catalyst, from the family of champion 3-year-old filly Tempest Queen.

“We will cherish every foal we get by The Lieutenant and are very happy that the first one came to one of our favorite New York breeders, Meadow Hill Lane Farm,” said Becky Thomas, owner of Sequel New York where The Lieutenant stood during his debut season at stud.

A talented, graded stakes-winning miler, The Lieutenant, was a half-brother to Justify – the only Triple Crown winner to retire undefeated and was by Street Sense – the first ever winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and Kentucky Derby.

The Lieutenant was one of four stallions killed during a December raid on Haras Barlovento in Peru, where he had been standing the Southern Hemisphere season. His only crop of North American foals will be born in 2020.
