A son of deceased Kris S. and bred by Flaxman Holdings, Kris Kin won the Epsom Derby in his first start after winning the Philip Leverhulme Dee Stakes (Eng-III) in his season opener for owner Saeed Suhail. Following the Derby, he ran third in both the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes (Eng-I) and Prix Neil Casino Barriere d'Enghien Les Bains (Fr-II). Overall, he won three of seven races and earned $1,641,792.
Kris Kin, this year's Epsom Derby (Eng-I) winner, was retired from racing several days after his unplaced effort in the Oct.5 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Lucien Barriere (Fr-I). He will stand at Sheikh Hamdan's Derrinstown Stud in Ireland for 8,000 euros (approximately $9,400).
