Presenting one of the last of the Lemon Drop Kid offspring, Regal Empire is from the penultimate crop of this great stallion, who is a very popular sire in the sport horse world, known for good brained, durable, sound, athletic horses with a lot of heart and jumping ability. Reflecting his excellent breeding, Regal Empire sold for $90,000 as a weanling and $125,000 as a 2 year old — but he’s now available for a new non-racing career for a fraction of those lofty prices! Regal Empire was described to us as very friendly, great in turnout with other horses, good with dogs, sound and with great feet –which is not an attribute that can be said about a lot of thoroughbreds. He has minor filling in his ankles that has been there for his whole racing career and has never bothered him. Our volunteers found him to be very sweet and friendly, and we enjoyed hanging out with him in front of his stall as he soaked up our attention. He was very quiet and well behaved for his jog video, and displayed lovely movement, light and even with some spring to the trot. Regal Empire never lived up to his pedigree on the track — he has 16 starts, and while he has picked up a lot of checks, he has yet to win. His pedigree for sport horse disciplines is outstanding. As we said, his sire Lemon Drop Kid is a coveted sport horse sire, by Kingmambo and from the same female family as AP Indy. Regal Empire’s dam is from Officer/Relaunch, Quiet American/Fappiano, Tri Jet, and Skip Trial/Damascus lines — all stout, sound lines that have produced many horses excelling in eventing, steeplechasing, and other jumping disciplines.
