Darby Dan Farm’s American Lion, the multiple graded stakes-winning son of Tiznow, sired his first foal when a bay filly was born on Jan. 31 at Red Riding Hood Stables in Holly, Michigan. 

Bred by Christine Kutlenios, the filly is out of the stakes-placed mare Klinsman’s Luck, a half-sister to multiple stakes winner Regal Pusher and stakes winner Born to Be Bad.

American Lion captured graded stakes wins at two and three and amassed earnings of $417,800 on the track. He broke his maiden impressively at Keeneland as a two-year-old before winning the Hollywood Prevue S. (G3) in his next start at two. At three, American Lion stretched his speed out to 1 1/8 miles to win the Illinois Derby (G3), and he also placed in the Robert Lewis S. (G2) on the Kentucky Derby trail before retiring to Darby Dan in Lexington.

By Tiznow, American Lion hails from the Storm Cat mare Storm Tide, a daughter of Grade 1 winner City Band. He bred 110 mares from his first book at stud in 2012, and was a participant in Darby Dan’s “Share The Upside” program. American Lion is set to stand his second season in 2013 for a fee of $5,000 stands and nurses.
