About King

Fivekindsofcrazy is a total misnomer for this very special 16hh, 2013 gelding by Lemon Drop Kid out of Cukee by Langfuhr. To us, he is “King” because of his aristocratic pedigree, his chivalrous character, his grandsire Kingmambo, and finally, because of his uncanny resemblance to his foundational sire the Godolphin Arabian, made famous in Marguerite Henry’s book “King of the Wind”. His eyes are kind, his forehead is broad, his conformation is classic, his movement at liberty is breath-taking. Sold as a $250,000 yearling at the Keeneland sales, we found King at Mountaineer, body-weary and running in cheap claiming races. His joints show wear and tear from the hard road he’s traveled, so although he can definitely have a second career it’s hard to say  how far up the levels he can go. But if you’re looking for a beautiful, intelligent, and generous partner who will take care of you and love you no matter how far you get competitively, King is the one for you. In so many ways, he’s priceless. He’ll win your heart; we know this for sure because he’s won ours.
