Ron Mitchell asks Ken Ramsey about how Ken discovered Kitten's Joy and what Kitten's Joy's offspring have been up to over the past several years. View a slideshow on Kitten's Joy's progeny.
The ascendency of Kitten’s Joy to the upper echelon of the North American sire list is a credit to the confidence placed in the son of El Prado by Ken and Sarah Ramsey, who bred and raced the 2004 champion male grass horse. Since standing his first season in 2006 for $25,000, Kitten’s Joy’s fee has doubled to $50,000 in 2013. Through Aug. 31, Kitten’s Joy has been represented by 39 stakes winners (37 of which were bred by the Ramseys) and his progeny have earned in excess of $25.2 million.
