Richard's Kid

The globetrotting Richard’s Kid was a rather modest runner toiling in his home state of Maryland until he was purchased privately by Arnold Zetcher in the spring of 2009 and turned over to trainer Bob Baffert. In the hands of the Hall of Fame conditioner, the son of Lemon Drop Kid turned into a major stakes winner, taking back-to-back runnings of the Pacific Classic (G1) in 2009 and 2010. Zetcher sold Richard’s Kid to Zabeel Racing International in January 2010 and he remained in California with Baffert throughout the year. In 2011, he was sent to Dubai to race due to his affinity for synthetic tracks, but could do no better than a fifth in five starts between March 2011 and March 2012. He returned to California shortly after that start and has since blossomed again in Baffert’s care. Richard’s Kid is the product of several generations of breeding by Robert Meyerhoff’s Fitzhugh. His dam, Tough Broad, is by Meyerhoff’s multiple stakes winner and top sire Broad Brush.
