The second most popular freshman sire among breeders this year with over 200 mares bred, MCKINZIE sees a combined 43 mares carrying his first foals cataloged at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale and Keeneland November Sale.

Into Mischief’s Bourbon Oaks winner Naughty Joker is one of three stakes performers out of the Distorted Humor mare Fleeting Humor and is carrying her first foal by MCKINZIE on an April 23 cover.
Her siblings include the Grade 3-placed AFLEET ALEX son Seventhfleethumor and stakes-placed Cathedral Reader as well. Her own dam is a half-sister to stakes winner Bosco out of the Grade 2-placed Fly Borboleta.
Twenty-three hips later is Sisterhood, also consigned by Ramsey Farm, as Hip 236. A stakes winning full sister to the stakes winner Cozy Kitten and Grade 3-placed Becky’s Kitten, Sisterhood has already produced a stakes winner from her first foal in the stakes winner and Grade 3-placed In The Mood.
Both of Sisterhood’s runners are winners with the mare also one of five winners from her dam and that mare one of six winners out of Jodie Faster. Sisterhood produced a Catholic Boy filly this year and is bred to MCKINZIE on a May 24 cover.
The following day, the November sales cross town to Keeneland, where MCKINZIE has 41 mares in-foal scheduled to go through the ring.
