Lemon Drop Kid was the complete package when he went to stud in 2001 with an impeccable pedigree, top-of-his-class ability all three years racing, and dashing good looks.

The classic American cross is speed over stamina, but Charitable Man has a pedigree that flips this model upside down. The son of Lemon Drop Kid is still getting the job done, having just won the grade II Futurity Stakes. If he keeps improving, Charitable Man could become his sire's first male grade I winner.
Charming Lassie, dam of champion and millionaire Lemon Drop Kid, died March 12, several hours after foaling a Storm Cat filly.
William S. Farish's Lane's End Farm and Mrs. Jeanne Vance announced Friday that Lemon Drop Kid, the 1999 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winner who won last weekend's Whitney Handicap, will go to the Versailles, Ky. farm to stand at stud when he retires following this year's Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) on Nov. 4. The 4-year-old colt will be syndicated with the stud fee to be determined later.
