Kitalpha, a full brother to major sire Kingmambo, will stand at Gerry and Dana Aschinger's War Horse Place near Lexington. The 9-year-old unraced son of Mr. Prospector, out of international champion Miesque, will stand for $7,500. He is owned by the Aschingers.
A Kentucky-bred, Kitalpha formerly stood in Zimbabwe. According to South African reports provided by the Aschingers, Kitalpha is the sire of stakes winners Frog Watch, Killaridge, and Queen of the Hill, plus stakes-placed Stella Bella. Frog Watch won the 2007 group III Wakefield TBA Champion Juvenile Stakes and Stella Bella, a filly, ran third. Frog Watch, with earnings of $535,000 in U.S. funds, was Zimbabwe's leading earner in 2007.
Kitalpha is represented by 18 runners that have won 15 races and placed in 14 others from 29 starts.
Kitalpha not only is a full brother to Kingmambo, who has sired 73 stakes winners, but also to French champion filly East of the Moon and French stallion Miesque's Son. Miesque, by Nureyev, won consecutive runnings of the Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT) and was voted an Eclipse Award both years.
