The breeding partnership of Al Libfeld and Marvin Katz recently added six accomplished mares to their broodmare band, which is already one of the most elite in the industry.

There are two pacers and four trotters among the group, with the pacing mares being two of the most talented to step on a track in the past few years. They each have been acclaimed as the best of their division, as well as receiving multiple Dan Patch and O’Brien Award honours.

Kissin In The Sand (Somebeachsomewhere-Kiss Me Kate p, 3, 1:47.4 [$1,741,094]) has been at the top of her game through a career that spanned from age two through five. She captured many stakes events along the way, is a two-time Dan Patch award winner and earned close to $2 million.
