The first foal by late stallion The Lieutenant is a filly born Saturday, February 1 at Keane Stud for breeder Meadow Hill Lane Farm.

She is out of Keysong, a Kentucky-bred winner by Songandaprayer who has already produced a winner. Keysong’s second foal, Kentucky-bred Song of the Nile by Pioneerof the Nile, brought $575,000 at the 2015 Keeneland September yearling sale. Keysong is a half-sister to Pebble Stakes winner Miss Catalyst and from the family of 1978 Eclipse champion 3-year-old filly Tempest Queen.

“We will cherish every foal we get by The Lieutenant and are very happy that the first one came to one of our favorite New York breeders, Meadow Hill Lane Farm,” said Sequel owner Becky Thomas.

A talented, graded stakes-winning miler, The Lieutenant by Street Sense was a half-brother to Triple Crown winner Justify. Tragically, he was among four stallions killed at Haras Barlovento in Cañete, Peru after farm invasion on Dec. 21.
