Lightnin N Thunder, a stakes-placed son of Storm Cat, will relocate to Vincent Harris' Fruitful Acres Farm near Aguanga, Calif., while Hidden Blessing will stand his first season at the farm in 2014.

Lightnin N Thunder's fee is $3,000, while Hidden Blessing will stand for $1,500 or free to approved mares.

Impeachment, a classic-placed son of Deputy Minister, stood at Fruitful Acres in 2013 and remains on the roster for a fee of $2,000.

Twelve-year-old Lightnin N Thunder ran third in the 2003 James C. Ellis Juvenile Stakes at Ellis Park and second in the Miller Genuine Draft Cradle Stakes at River Downs. He is the sire of seven stakes winners and five stakes-placed runners, including group I winner and two-time Korean champion Bulpae Gisan. Lightnin N Thunder's progeny have earned more than $5 million.

Lightnin N Thunder is out of the stakes-winning Stalwart mare Things Change, who is from the family of grade I winner Harlan. Lightnin N Thunder formerly stood at Frontrunner Thoroughbreds near West Manchester, Ohio.

Hidden Blessing, a son of Orientate  , retired from racing this summer with a career of 7-4-10 from 44 starts, for earnings of $178,030. A half brother to multiple graded stakes-placed runner Remand (by Successful Appeal  ), he is out of the Mr. Greeley mare Fast 'n Fleet.
