‘Off To A Great Start’: First Foal Is A Filly For Lane’s End Stallion Lexitonian – Horse Racing News


The first foal by Lexitonian, a filly out of Vinca.

Grade 1 winner and multiple Grade 1 placed Lexitonian’s first foal arrived Sunday, Jan. 29 at Calumet Farm.

The filly, out of Vinca (Oxbow – Elusive Diva, by Elusive Quality), was bred by Calumet Farm, who raced and owns the stallion. Vinca is out of multiple graded stakes winner Elusive Diva and is a half-sister to champion sprinter Roy H.

“We’ve been excited to see the foals for our homebred Lexitonian and are delighted that the first one is born at Calumet,” said Eddie Kane, general manager of Calumet. He continued, “She has a lot of leg, good bone, and is well balanced. If this is any indicator of what his babies are going to look like, we’re going to be off to a great start.”

Lexitonian is a Grade 1-winning son of champion Speighstown. He broke his maiden in impressive fashion in his first start at two at Belmont before going on to win the Grade 3 Chick Lang Stakes and Concern Stakes at three while also hitting the board in the G2 Phoenix Stakes at Keeneland.

At four, he ran second by a nose to Collusion Illusion in the G1 Bing Crosby Stakes. In his 5-year-old campaign he ran second by a head to Flagstaff in the hotly contested G1 Churchill Downs Stakes before scoring a huge victory in the G1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap at Saratoga.

Lexitonian is the first foal out of Riviera Romper (Tapit). She is the daughter of G1 Test winner Swap Fliparoo that Calumet acquired at the 2015 Keeneland November Sale for $310,000.

Lexitonian stands for $7,500.
